Master the art of winter photography.

01
Find peak perspective.

Getting the view from the top? Inject your panorama with maximum drama by stepping back and shooting from a wide angle. Perch on a fallen tree trunk to steady the shot and never, ever shoot directly into the sun.

Get up to speed.

Some adrenalized moments require a digital camera for precision capture. Expose your extreme speed shots onto film with the Polaroid Lab instant photo printer.

Determined to develop the shot on the spot? More light = more chance of catching movement, so try shooting with flash.

Your winter white‑out.

Snowy scenes are oh-so-magical, but can be awkward to shoot. If glare causes your shots to look over or under exposed, adjust the exposure setting to get the light just right. Remember, Polaroid film loves to be warm, so keep it on your body and under your coat, before and after shooting, for the picture perfect temperature.

Dial up the drama.

Finding the light a lackluster shade of gray? Embrace drama by shooting on black and white film. Monochrome shots make simple walks in the park look epic. They add atmosphere and texture to give the story a whole new narrative.

Turn on the bright lights.

Dark days don’t have to mean moody photos. Use the flash to bring some brightness to your world. It adds shadow and depth, while giving your subject that VIP glow.

Contrast your tones.

Give yourself a new perspective by bringing out tones. Yellow filters are a classic choice for B&W film to highlight clouds and penetrate haze. Blue filters notoriously add extra ‘mood’ to the shot.

Get set.

Your house may not be a pro studio but you probably have enough lights to create great effects. Try to illuminate your subject with different lamps from around your house. Set up a tripod, hold the light behind the camera and point at your subject to find your ‘Director of Photography’ vibe. Still coming out dark? You can always use the flash.

Paint with light.

A great light painting is a milestone moment for Polaroid photographers. Set yourself up in a low lit room with a tripod. Grab your Polaroid Now+ and open Light Painting mode on the Polaroid app, then open the shutter button from your phone and ‘paint’ with a phone torch, lamp or bike light.

Keep it real.

The very best light is straight from the sun. While always keeping your camera steady, take portraits by windows to soak your subject in natural light and give them that organic glow.
