52 Cameras: #5 – Polaroid 600


Part of the original project. No results photographs in the video.


These two are from the old Polaroid film that was in the camera when I got it.

Film is Impossible Project PX 680. Scanned at 1200 DPI on a Canon MP480 then resized for the web. No other post-processing. The colors are pretty true to the prints.

I’ve photographed this chair several times but never got the feel I was looking for. It needed a Polaroid.

The smudge at the bottom and the vertical banding is from the camera’s rollers not evenly distributing the developer.

I like the soft, dreamy effect. I need to get some of the “Silver Shade” black and white.

It was about 5 PM on a really cloudy fall day so I think the camera and film performed well.
