Impossible I-1 Masterclass and shooting tips

Impossible I-1 MasterclassWe sat in on the Impossible Project‘s I-1 Masterclass this morning to learn about some tips and provide feedback on the I-1 which we’ve been shooting now for over a month.  Our original review went over a few things that were directly addressed in the Masterclass including battery life, viewfinder use and more.

Impossible I-1 Review

photo by Impossible ProjectThe new Impossible I-1 is the first instant camera developed by Impossible Project and has some really neat features including an app that you can control it from for added creative features.  I ordered one as soon as possible which was a day before it was available to the general public, having been a supporter of Impossible since the early days (as a Pioneer).

Instant Photography

warhol_polaroids_fo_int_open_0274_0275_05790_1505071800_id_957207

For Christmas, my parents got me a bit of “light” reading, Andy Warhol Polaroids 1958-1987 by Richard Woodward. Okay, so there isn’t much text, but this behemoth of a coffee table book weighs about five pounds and opens to full page spreads of nothing other than Polaroids. I have noticed that despite the fact Polaroid no longer exists, it is really making a comeback. Whether it is people bringing old Polaroid cameras back to life with the help of the Impossible Project or people embracing the new Fujifilm Instax cameras, I’m seeing instant photos everywhere.  […]

Polaroid SX-70, Impossible Project films and sparking creativity

I’ve always loved the Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera and finally found one in great condition on eBay so bidded on it and won.  I had been saving some Impossible Project Fade to Black Film 10/09 film just to use with this and did a personal project with it to see how it’d turn out.  Of course with expermental film like Fade To Black you never know exactly what you’ll get and that’s half the fun.

One of the things I love about film was how you couldn’t chimp your screen right after and had to wait to see what you got exactly.  Of course when you were on assignment and weren’t sure if you got the shot, it wasn’t so exciting in a positive way always.  Well with the Impossible Project bringing back Polaroid I’ve found it to be a great source for creativity.  Giving yourself assignments is easy when you have an 8-10 pack of film that you can use all in one day or weekend.  I decided on something very Mr. Rogers-like and gave myself the assignment of “who are some of the people in your neighborhood” and went out and took their portraits.  What follows is the results…
