Polaroid SX-70 with expired 600 film - Frederick, MD - March 2011
I’ve been going through phases with instant photography. Sometimes I can’t will myself to shoot at all, and other times my polaroid cameras are seemingly glued to my hands.
I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately, and was convinced that I’d be sitting this year’s ‘Roid Week out. But some concerned tweets and a surprise delivery of film from my instant photography hero nudged me to check out the Flickr pool, and once I did, I couldn’t help getting a little glimmer of my mojo back.
Here are a few photos I made this week. And I’m planning to bring some cameras to a penny farthing race this weekend. So, with any luck, there will be more images to come.
I made this photo with my Polaroid Pro Cam and expired Spectra Image film. It’s currently on exhibit at Unique Optique in downtown Frederick. Glad you like it.
A couple of my photos were featured in this week’s Impossible Project newsletter - April Showers Bring Instant Flowers. I’ve been shooting lots of spring blossoms lately. These particular monochrome flowers are PX100 UV+ shots I made on my recent trip to NYC.
I don’t mention it as often as I should, because I don’t want to be too self-promotey, but my work has been featured in a bunch of Impossible newsletters recently, including The Eight Wonders of the Impossible World (March 6, 2012) and Take a Walk on the Wide Side (February 21, 2012).
It’s always humbling to be included with amazing instant photographers from around the world. The Impossible Project does a wonderful job of spotlighting and connecting artists who use their film … It’s refreshing to work with a company that really gets it.
I’ve been so smitten with my iPhone lately that I’ve been neglecting my Polaroid cameras. It felt so good to bust out my ProCam over the weekend. (More on Flickr.)
