do you have access to a darkroom?
you might consider shooting paper negatives
instead of expensive+fast fuji instant film.
photo paper is cheap and nearly as instant ...
you just need developer and fixer.
rate it at about asa 6 or 12 or 24 depending on the paper you use.
point your camera out the window, don't bother with a flash
it will complicate things ...
do sunny 16 ( umm 11 ) so your asa 12 paper will be 1/12S at f 11 if it is bright sun
( 1/10th is close enough ) ...
process your paper negative in whatever developer you have, print is ok, film is ok
even instant coffee will develop your prints, but it will take a while, so be prepared to
wait a few mins in the soup.
instant film is great if you want or need instant results, but expensive if you are starting out
especially if you don't have a fast enough shutter, too much light, or confusion about over and under exposure to achieve good results ...
good luck !
