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!
