WATCH: Capturing the colors of Binondo with the Polaroid One Step 2
MANILA, Philippines - The Polaroid One Step 2 is not the easiest camera to wield – at least if you’re someone who’s used to being able to control camera settings to get a particular outcome.
We discovered as much when we put the instant camera in the hands of professional photojournalist Alecs Ongcal, who tried it out in various locations around Binondo for a Rappler Challenge.
In the first part of the challenge, Alecs contended with the Polaroid One Step 2's fiddly flash and viewfinder, as she captured images on black-and-white film. (WATCH: Landmark hunting in Binondo with the Polaroid One Step 2)
For the final part of the challenge, Alecs reloaded the camera with colored film this time, and shot photos in Binondo’s busy Ongpin street, Plaza Lacson, and Jones Bridge as the sun set.
Does Alecs finally get a hang of the instant camera? Does the flash work well at night? What do images look like on Polaroid’s colored film? Watch the video to find out! – Rappler.com
