Polaroid

Here’s a quick little set from my first ever batch of Polaroids! The film is from The Impossible Project which tends to leave a sort of cream colored cast to each image, especially on the whites. The quality/sharpness isn’t all that great and I wasn’t sure how to adjust for exposure (within the span of 8 photos at least) and it kind of reminds me of a Holga in this sense. I bought the film because I’ve had an old Polaroid One Step sitting in my closet forever and I thought it was about time to make it worth the $5 I spent on it. I honestly didn’t think I would enjoy taking photos with it as much as I did; I saw it as more of an experiment and perhaps a slight alternative to Instagram which I feel has taken over my life lately. I can’t wait to get my hands on some more film, though to be honest, it ain’t cheap – around $23 for a pack of 8!

Buuuut, sweet instant (30 min) gratification…
