Decorate Your Home – Instax mini Evo

How can you make a home really YOUR home? Definitely by decorating and giving it your personal touch, expressing your true self. This is also what you do with our Instax cameras, you express yourself. Our colleagues from Instax Spain have partnered with Westwing España, which are going to show us which decorative styles are those that fit best with our amazing Instax mini Evo.

If you have not heard about it yet, the Instax mini Evo is one of our latest additions to the Instax family. Although it is a camera that offers multiple digital functions: from 10 different lens and film effects to various shooting modes, its design is reminiscent of that of a full-fledged vintage camera. Therefore, we like to call the Instax mini Evo black a ‘vintage-looking hybrid’. With its classic shape and design, the camera has that elegant and refined finish. For that reason, it is perfect to have as an additional decorative element, giving final touches to your vintage or industrial home decoration style.

Vintage decorative style

You have probably already seen and noticed it, everything comes back. We already know that there are things that never go out of style. Neither does Vintage, which is characterized by the use of furniture with a worn appearance and the reuse of old pieces from between the 20s and 70s. This decorative style manages to bring a lot of personality and charm in any house. Now to the more important part… Where to place the camera? Place your instax mini Evo where it can be seen, like on a console in the hall, so that when you enter the house both you and your guests see this detail. This will not only create the perfect vintage look in combination with a console that has a worn effect, it will also ensure that you never forget it before leaving home!

Industrial Style

For everyone who wants the perfect mix of materials such as metal, leather, cement and untreated wood, the industrial characteristic style of the 60s is your perfect match. This style goes perfectly with the black and metallic colors of the Instax mini Evo. Let’s be realistic, in a dining room of this style you can not miss a large metal shelf that brings character to the room. Combine it with accessories such as chandeliers, trays, concrete vases and… With the Instax mini Evo! So, let’s get ready to add a more characteristic and powerful touch to the room and amaze everyone when visiting you!

Did you get inspired to overthink your interior and decoration style again? Don’t forget to get yourself some unique furniture pieces and of course, don’t forget to get your own Instax mini Evo!

Our booth came with a surprise for our fans too… We had arranged a meet & greet with influencer Julia Fröhlich and Alina Mour, so that you had the chance to get to know them. From this emotional moment, visitors have been able to take a signed instax picture home with them.

How to: Create the perfect vacation photos

Summer is probably the favorite season for the majority of us since it is holiday season. Here at Fujifilm everyone is taking a break lately to recharge their batteries and enjoy the summer with family, friends or just by themselves. Most of us love to take time off to get out of the city, country, or even continent to explore new locations and get a change of scenery. Of course, those moments, and everything we get to see and experience on those journeys, should be captured and saved as memories. Therefore, we want to show you how to capture perfect vacation photos to make your trip literally unforgettable. Here are a few things you need to know for your next vacation trip:

Wider Scenes

Usually, it is all about setting the scene, and telling the story of your vacation is no different. We all know the moment when we are travelling from an out-of-town airport to the hotel and want to catch the first glimpse of the city skyline. On a hiking vacation, in a situation where you are preparing for the ascent of a mountain, make an image of the peak’s awesome majesty. These pictures taken at that moment will preserve the feeling of excitement at the adventure that lies ahead.

Details

Wider scene setting images are great and stunning to look at, but if that is all you see, it can feel a little impersonal. Therefore, making images focusing on the details which give an area its character are important to consider and are captivating too. Details can come in a variety of forms. As unique architectural design, exotic plants and flowers, food, shapes, or anything that stands out to you.

Culture

Culture and the cultural shock experienced while travelling is probably the reason #1 we love to visit other countries and destinations. Subsequently, the best place to start is where culture itself starts: the local people. Look for any unique practices that interest you, from day-to-day life, such as local dress, food, or modes of transport, to deeply important customs and rituals such as commemoration, worship or social etiquette. However, it is extremely essential to be respectful when photographing local people because you do not want to offend or molest them. Check what is culturally acceptable and what is not beforehand, or simply ask for permission before raising your camera in front of their eyes.

Personal Experience

Capturing all the unique elements that shapes your destination is one important part, but we cannot forget what makes your trip special. It is essential to capture your own experiences as well. Tell the story from your perspective: your preparation for the trip with an image of your packed bags at home before you leave; memorialize afternoons at the beach bar with images of the waiter mixing your favorite drink; or remember the vehicle and driver that took you on a nail-biting journey between mountain villages. Most important, take photos of yourself having fun!

Remember it is all about emotions which make your story and that always begins with YOU. Do not feel like you need to make a picture, make it because you want to keep this moment forever.
