    Recently attended the Saint-Dolores annual gathering in Montreal I had decided the drop all Digital and change mediums, as such I had my Canon AE-1 and recently acquired Polaroid SX-70 (gotta love pawn shops).



    The Following two I used a flash attachment of origin. Use your intuition, don,t subscribe to what the manual necessarily tells you to do.







    This last one is taken with a JobPro, same film stock.

    I am an old fool (maybe, :raisedbrow:) but I find this picture quite romantic and like especially #1.

    Interesting shots.. but not my cup of tea! Did you intentionally soften these, and apply some sort of vintage filter? I had an SX-70 back in the day.. and it took sharp, colorful images. Is that just due to the type of film that is available today?

    That's exactly right, Impossible Project film is the only commercially available stock nowadays, the chemical process is not the same as original Polaroid. The film comes out as a bright blue and takes about an hour to develop, vs the 15 minutes of yesteryear (if I remember correctly, I was young!).

    The last Picture was taken with a 600 series camera, so it's not the SX-70 itself but the film stock. For my next series I shall place a blue filter; cut up polarized Movie theater glasses, which when applied the right way filter out some red/orange light (NOT red/cyan glasses, I am talking about Real 3D). Can't wait to see what it does!

    The first one looks like it has an enlarger diffusion effect applied.

    Heh, all instant retro :p

    The only manipulation I did do is to remove as much sepia and white balancing as possible without damaging the scan.
