People, I just got surprised by some film I got back from the lab. I was expecting mostly recent photos, but instead I got a pile of gems from the last year and a half (plus). Some of the shots were taken so long ago, I thought I got someone else’s film. There are some from last year’s trip to Poland, some with the baby Buddy, and even one from a film I worked on in another life.
We all know I don’t know how to travel light when it comes to cameras. Luckily, I have friends who are just as crazy as I am. Fortunately, Mr. S is a carried baby, because boy did that stroller come in handy when we went to the CNE on a photo trip with Ryan and Calla last year.
C’moooooonnnn, summer–our click click click click cameras are waiting.
From what I can gather Impossible Project is currently selling their new black & white film for SX-70 cameras, and will introduce colour film sometime in the summer. At some point, they will also be making 600 film. Meanwhile, they have a bunch of carefully stored and tested original film for sale as well, packed in limited edition modern sleeves, designed by Paul Giambarba.
I cannot stop browsing the site. AND WANT TO BUY EVERYTHING.
I’m most fascinated by the manipulable film. If you think capturing a fleeting moment is hard with regular film, just imagine the possibilities with this:
SX-70 FadeToBlack is an experimental film made from expired time-zero chemicals. These expired chemicals lend the film a constantly mutating color palette, without manipulation the film will turn totally black after 24 hours.
Well, it’s March. Craft Month has come to a close. I won’t be dissecting how well it went–that’s boring. Crafting will remain a regular feature here, not to worry. I have a whole ToDo List dedicated to it. In the meantime, I’m glad I’ll be able to post some content not having to do with crafts (guilt free!).
Here are some Polaroids from Saturday’s walk to Cherry Beach.
I really hope the rumours about the Polaroid factory becoming operational are true. I’m getting pretty good at these.
Gosh this computer fiasco has really left me feeling beaten down. Does a photoshoot with Ms. Evans count as a craft?
Well if it doesn’t, I am still workin’ away at several projects that I hope to finish and post for you soon.
Before it’s not January anymore, and my excuses are all gone, here are some of the lovely absolutely freakin’ AMAZING photos Miss Evans took over the course of my pregnancy. She’s something, ain’t she?
