Today's challenge: Frame within a frame. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whether it’s a literal frame (mirror, window, doorway, etc) or a well-placed geometric shape, look ways in which the world reflects the white space around your Polaroid image. Can you work with certain forms to make a balanced picture? Or set up certain lines and angles so that they intersect in an interesting way? Show off your frame forte by tagging your photos with #polaroidweek2019. We’ll announce our top pick tomorrow 👀 📷@amgbrissie80 shot on OneStep2

Today’s challenge: Perspective. You see things differently than anyone else. Climb up on top of something, and look down. See what happens when you turn your camera sideways. Watch out for puddles, and other reflective surfaces. Show us your unique Polaroid perspective by tagging your photos with #polaroidweek2019. We’ll announce our top pick tomorrow 👀 📷@migueldelarte shot on SX-70

Today’s theme is Texture. Technically, you can’t touch what’s inside an image. But sometimes you feel like you can. It’s all about how light and shadow work together in the illusion of softness, or bumpiness. How can you capture this on film? Tag your your texture-full Polaroid photos with #polaroidweek2019. We’ll announce our top pick tomorrow 👀 📷 @pushed_portra shot on an SX-70

INSTAGRAM OF THE DAY: Zach Bibby (@upfull_innerg) has been shooting with Polaroid ever since he was gifted a sturdy yellow 600 Job Pro 2. This inspired a new creative perspective for him – one in which he always shoots with intention. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Composition is key for me, so I look for interesting textures, backgrounds, colors and subjects. It’s really important to tell the whole story with film.” #polaroidoriginals

Photography. From Greek, it means “drawing with light”. Therefore it’s only fitting that our theme for this week's #polaroidoriginals challenge is "drawing attention to light". You know, literally. Sharply contrasted or softly diffused, artificial or natural - the choice of light is entirely up to you. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For a chance to be featured, tag your #polaroidoriginals photos before April 18. We’ll select four photos and invite our community to share love for their favorite. 📷 @torisviokla - shot on OneStep+ with I-type film

INSTAGRAM OF THE DAY: Bret Watkins’ (@intothepolaroid) love for photography began when he first picked up a Polaroid camera with a few shots left in it. Once he saw the photos develop as if by magic, he was hooked. “Polaroid has such a cinematic quality to it, so my goal is to always create a world that feels real yet dreamy. I want my Polaroids to be a place you’ve never been but want to visit.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #polaroidoriginals
