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.

details with the Polaroid CU-5

The Polaroid CU-5, a rather interesting camera; used back in the day for forensic & dental photography. What a perfect light-box for the macro loving, Polaroid obsessed, forensic pathologist wanna-be!

I came across this gem of a camera while casually browsing eBay…I couldn’t resist snagging it for the $50 price tag.

I’d like to share with you, my first few creations…

Polaroid SX-70 New Works

I managed to pull a few nice shots out of my Polaroid SX-70 camera, which until recently, has been having a few mechanical issues.  I used Artistic Z film for all the photos listed.  I prefer the signature Polaroid sloppy border, therefore I removed the photo backing from each sheet of film.  I love how this one simple manipulation offers such a dramatic touch.  Feel free to post comments or ask any questions!  Thanks!
