    I got impatient waiting for the sun to go out so I could test out the newly found polaroid camera, so I shot one off this afternoon in the living room so I could get some experience with the whole manipulating thing. Its so weird, yet so fun, dang that Polaroid for discontinuing this stuff :(

    I used the stylus from my palm pilot to manipulate the emulsion. Hopefully this weekend the weather will cooperate, I have a few ideas milling in my head for this baby. Not so bad for a test run though, Im glad it at least exposed properly!

    I think it looks great! :thumbup: You'll have fun in the sun, too. Can't wait to see some more. Looks like this is a technique you had no trouble picking up. I think using the stylus was inspired! :D

    So, this was from a new lot of the film, eh? hmmm.....guess I should buy some more and shove it in the fridge. :sigh: Time Zero.... :heart:

    Thanks all! I have to admit the process was nothing like I thought it would be (then again when is anything ever how you think it would be) - slightly scary, but in the end very fun once I figured it out. I guess I have the mighty search tool here to thank for that! Yes Terri, this was a new bach of film, without any experience of what 'old film' was like I couldnt tell you if it was any different, but it did stay malleable for a few hours if that helps.

    I know this is a little off subject, but I butcher polaroids all the time. Have you ever thought of changing the lens on a pack film polaroid so you could do time exposure and control the lighting, without having to buy an expensive camera. It really isnt hard to do or expensive.

    I'm not into the manipulation thing. Very few catch my eye I really like this one though. :)
