My First Fade to Black Photography

Have you heard about the beautiful limited edition Sx-70 Polaroid film called Fade to Black? It's available from, and it's extremely unique. The images for this lovely film--made from very expired Time-Zero chemicals--fade to black after several hours! They are ephemeral, magical, and yet, you can save them, if you stop the developing process using a variety of easy--albeit messy!--techniques.

I've had a few packs of this film for a couple of months, but I just got around to shooting my first image with the film yesterday--and I am already in love! I took this photo of my whippet, Laika, and scanned it within a minute of shooting.

I cannot wait to shoot more of this beautiful, mysterious film! Stay tuned!
