Impossible Project PX70 PUSH

Today I shot a few more Polaroids in the studio. Unlike the last set, this is a new batch of film, the Impossible PX70 PUSH!, which is the newest color formula from the Impossible project.

As you can tell, there is a whole lot more color in this film than the last round. I specifically chose a subject that had more color in it as well, to see how bright I could get the colors. Going from some research I did on Impossible's website, I knew that using a lot of light, specifically artificial light,  would also help the colors really come out. So far, I'm really impressed with this film, although it's stability over time is yet to be seen.

I'm thinking of submitting an image soon to the Impossible Project's website to see if I can't get chosen to be one of their official testers of new film products. They will only be selecting ten, but I think it's worth a submission either way.

More from this film coming soon.

  2. These look great timothy. Did you shoot these with strobes?

  3. Thank you. No, I didn't use strobes. I used a combination of hot lights, all tungsten but gelled to daylight. Still had a longer exposure, around a second to a second and a half.
