Can you take Polaroid pictures at night?
At the most complex, a Polaroid camera may have a light/dark adjustment and a close-up switch. Shooting at night may take some trial-and-error to understand your camera’s capabilities, as manuals offer little guidance.
Consequently, how do you take Polaroid pictures outside at night?
Set the camera to the indoor setting, even if you’re outside at night. If it’s on a different setting, the flash will neither fire nor be its optimal brightness. You may experience a one- or two-second delay from the time you hit “snap” to when the photograph is actually generated.
Subsequently, question is, why do my Polaroids come out white? There’s nothing as disappointing for an Instax user as waiting for a photo to develop, only to discover that it has turned out completely white. When this happens, it almost always means that the image has been overexposed. Overexposure is caused when the film is exposed to too much light.
Similarly one may ask, why are my instax photos dark?
Choose the wrong setting and the result will be either way too bright (overexposed) or far too dark (underexposed). Underexposure with the Mini 9 (or with any camera for that matter) is caused when the film isn’t exposed to enough light and can happen for a number of reasons as we’ll discover below.
Should you shake Polaroids?
The image “never touches air, so shaking or waving has no effect,” the company said on its site. “In fact, shaking or waving can actually damage the image. Rapid movement during development can cause portions of the film to separate prematurely, or can cause ‘blobs’ in the picture.”
