Instax DIY Day: Year II

Capturing moments turning into best memories started with 3R pictures being manually printed by photo studios using film rolls. It evolved to Polaroid pictures until everything had gone digital and up for self-printing. All throughout the years, we collected these photos, put in an album and labeled each because we wanted everything to be as nostalgic as it can be. The only thing we missed those days was our artistry, the way we squeezed our creative juices considering angles and designs. Until one day, Instax Fujifilm cameras redefined and pushed the inventive and innovation sides of how fun and artistic taking pictures. Together with their Second Year of DIY Day, they came up with a lot of ideas on how to be an artsy-fartsy in an instant!
Team Instax DIY Day Year 2 was held last April 15, 2015 and it was organized inside Shutter Master Pro. I came in as early as exactly 2pm because of my eagerness to learn more artistic techniques on my works both on my blog and daily DIY life. It was a rare experience seeing lively and bubbly set-up inside a camera shop with a coffee bar. I never thought that it will jive well with the well-coordinated pastel colors of Instax cameras.

The afternoon's event was hosted by Justine Santos and RJ Roque who made the happening well-facilitated. Also, Takeda Maeda opened up the event with his humor and welcomed us. He emphasized how important taking picture was and how we can make it better by designing it. He stated that each photo was worth our memory and together with Instax Fujifilm, they just launched the hashtag #instaxmemory. How the hashtag works? Take a snapshot of the people closest to your heart. Second, post the picture to your social media like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Lastly, tag 3-4 people and (@teaminstaxph) and never forget to put on the hashtag (#instaxmemory). In response, they will post photos of their own and will tag different people to spread the good news!
Reese Lansangan, jumpstarted the happening with her Instax photos as a keychain. Since she found it difficult bringing in bulky photo albums, she thought of a way to make it more convenient by collecting Instax pictures, design it, and put them all together.
As a style blogger, Verniece Enciso collected a lot of stuff from clothes all the way down to shoes. In her own convenience, she organized some of the pairs by taking a snapshot and post it outside of the box to avoid opening each manually. This is to easily determine what shoes she will match for her OOTD.
Highlighting each month with Instax photo was the specialty of Camie Juan. She made a boring calendar worth her #instaxmemory just by posting an event, adventure or occasions that happened or about to happen.
 Last but not the least was Rj Roque who focused on Collage and Double Exposure Instax Snapshots. He walked us through on how to make it, what background and techniques to make it right.
Also, to break the ice we were teamed up according to where we pinned our pictures on the registration booth. I originally belonged to Team 5 but since Team 2 lacked manpower, I volunteered to be teamed up with them. Although, we never won any award, we still managed to create a good handcraft of Instax photos. Agree?
Altogether with the help of Fujifilm that is focused on providing satisfaction worldwide, the brand aimed to give excitement and enjoyment on shooting, preserving, displaying and sending pictures to everyone. The label kept on encouraging everyone to capture each happy moments and enrich life with photography!

As you post photos on your accounts, never forget to tag @teaminstaxph with the hashtags #teaminstaxph and #instaxmemory. Also, if you want to be in the loop of the latest happenings, events and promos of Instax Fujifilm, do not forget to visit their facebook page here.

  3. This seems a wonderful place. I like photography, I just didn't pursue it. Polaroid Camera is expensive, I will just stick to digital. The calendar and clock is very creative.

  5. This sure is a fun event, something that I would have enjoyed. I love how photography has evolved from film to what we're enjoying right now. Sana lang mas maraming tao ang mag-print ng mga litrato, mas maganda ang pag-preserve ng mga ala-ala. I feel that this is one of the reasons why Instax has been such a huge hit.
