52 Cameras: # 185 — Polaroid ProPack




A lot of duplication with what is in the video. 10 frames in the pack & the first one jammed. Another, I had a dud bulb in a flash cube and it was black.

This is frame 2. Frame 1 jammed & I exposed this one getting it out.

The manual dev-goo spreading worked a little. The lighter area at middle left would have been blank. Not keeping tight control of pressure, I also lifted some developer – the white areas in the print – and spread it too thin – the light area to the right of Goober. I’d only seen the fern pattern with integral film before. Maybe I can tweak roller pressure and get better results out of Polaroid Originals/Impossible film.

Borrowed the rollers from a Color SuperPack and got proper developing.

The picture of Trinity above is a bit overexposed. I was too close and forgot to turn down the ProFlash power setting.

Looking closer, this isn't missing development, it's the bathroom wall. Dev problem would be on the left.

I couldn’t figure out why I was getting the beach-ball-of-death while resizing images in Preview. I’d opened the images stored on the iMac from the laptop. Apparently, I was closing Preview before the saves were complete and it did strange things.
The only interesting strange thing.
