Our Guide to Great Portraits.

Switch on the Portrait lens

Ok, obviously the best results come from the right set up, but did you know the OneStep+ camera has a secondary portrait lens? It allows you to get up close and personal, framing subjects from an ideal distance of 1-3 feet (30 to 90cm) away. Just breathe in, hold that breath, take your time and, when you’re ready, shoot.

Lighting is everything.

Polaroid film loves light, and natural light is best. Spotlight your subject with the sun at your back and, for best results, use the last hour before sunset. It’ll enhance that iconic warm and soft-contrast instant photograph aesthetic.

Be social!

Portraits are about capturing the essence of your subject, bringing something about them to the fore. Polaroid cameras are social creatures, so take advantage! Make your mate comfortable - talk, listen, give it time, and then when the moment hits, grab the perfect portrait.

App-ropriate additions.

The OneStep+ camera links with the Polaroid Originals app, allowing you to use the new Portrait Mode to its fullest. When you get the distance and lighting right - about 2-3 ft (60 to 90cm), not too dark and not too light, since you’re asking - you can attain the optimal levels of bokeh. It’s that photographic effect where your subject is in sharp focus and your background is blurry and bright. And it makes for great portraits.
