Fade to Black…a Polaroid weekend

Weekend back-road trip through Western Indiana and Eastern Illinois. All of the images were taken with a Polaroid SX-70 Sonar camera using expired FadetoBlack film. This limited edition film requires manipulation within minutes after developing or the image will ‘fade 2 black’ (hence the name). The longer one waits to manipulate the photo, the darker it will get – turning completely black in well under 24 hours. I manipulated the images below about 3-5 minutes after development. I found this film to be a perfect choice for capturing the decaying beauty of these historic barns.

Polaroids from the Tektronix C-30A close-up camera

I recently bought a vintage Tektronix C-30A close-up camera from Ebay.  This particular model comes with a Polaroid film back attached – which of course, is the main reason I bought the camera.  I’d like to share my first couple of shots that were taken using (expired) Polaroid Viva Color film.
