A Simple Bouquet

I love the beautiful wildflowers of spring, and on Friday, I got myself some poppy anemones from the Texas hill country to enjoy. I decided to take this photo of them, and I hope you like it.

Poppy Anemones (2010)
Camera: Polaroid SX-70
Film: Polaroid Fade to Black
This photo is in the process of fading to black, but I hope to solarize it and share it again later this year!

There's a print of this photo in my Etsy shop. Have a beautiful week ahead!

More of my Impossible Project Test Shots!

On Monday, I posted five of my shots from my experience as a tester of the new Impossible Project film stock for Polaroid SX-70 cameras. I'd like to share five more photos with you now, and I hope you like them!

I like my coffee analogue, like my photography

I came across an Impala...

Peteena, Looking Tough

Jade, Looking Circumspect

I've added two of my photos from this experimentation to my Etsy shop as very limited edition prints, and will add more in coming days! Don't forget: the new PX100 and PX600 films for Polaroid SX-70 and Polaroid 600 cameras go on sale tomorrow from the Impossible Project shop!

They said it couldn't be done, but the IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT is bringing back original instant film for your classic SX-70 camera!!!!!

I was deeply honored to be selected to be one of the test photographers of the new, beautiful Impossible Project film for SX-70 cameras, and I'd like to share some of my favorites from the 32 shots I made for them! (I will keep posting throughout the week!) What you see here are test photos; the final product may provide different results for you, but the wonderful thing about this new film is its flexibility and fluidity. I am so overwhelmed and honored to have been a part of this history, and I am so grateful to the Impossible Project for making this day possible.

These two photos have been selected by the Impossible team to be part of their first presentation of materials, and are currently hanging at their headquarters in New York City.

An Open Chrysanthemum (2010)

And these are three of my favorites from my test photos:

My precious little terrier boyfriend!

The Blonde
One of my Susie Sad Eyes dolls

The Orchids
I love the grain in this photo--it's one of my favorites.

I am overwhelmed by the honor of being a tiny part of this monumental moment of photography history. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at the Impossible Project for making this possible! Be sure to watch the film about the new film here!

Remember the words of Edwin Land, the inventor of Polaroid: "Don't undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible."

I Have a Proposition for You!

I have a little proposition for you! Do you have any spare Polaroid Time-Zero film laying about? If so, I'd love to shoot it for you! Here's my proposition:

You send me the film, and I will shoot it and send the originals back to you! What's the catch? I have the right to shoot what I want, scan them before I send them back, and sell any prints from the scans, if they come out nice!

If you'd like to enter into this little deal with me, send me an email! Regardless of how old the film is, I will shoot your film (provided the battery inside works!), sign the originals, and send them back to you! And if you're wondering what I do with Time-Zero, check out my Flickr set of Time-Zero Polaroids I've shot since 2005!

Thanks for considering!
