Expired Polaroid ID Ultraviolet Film - Country Winery

Today, I have a real quick post for you to share an image that I took along the road on my way home from Toronto this past weekend. While still on the other side of the border, I hopped off the highway for a bit to see the country side and drive along the Niagara wine trail. This photo is from one of the more interesting wineries that I drove past and seemed like the perfect place to stop to snap a few pictures. I shot this with a Polaroid 250 and some expired Polaroid ID UV film. 

Happy Friday and enjoy your weekends.

Expired Polaroid ID Ultraviolet Film - Impossible Project PX680 American Woods - Toronto's CN Tower

This past weekend I celebrated my birthday in Toronto, Ontario. Looking for a mini road trip/escape from the mayhem that is St. Patricks Day in Cleveland, we made the five hour trek up north for three nights to eat, drink and shoot some film. While the weather didn't quite cooperate in the way we hoped, we were able to cover a good deal of the city on foot. The film I shot was mostly 35 mm (because the cameras were compact and easy to carry around) but I did shoot a few instant photos along the way as well. 

At top is the CN Tower shot with a Polaroid 250 and some expired Polaroid ID UV Film. I actually took this photo from inside the loft we stayed at where the temperature was more conducive to shooting instant film. Below are two photos from the top of the CN Tower shot with a Polaroid SX70 and some of Impossible Projects PX 680 American Woods film. I've been wanting this film since it came out as a special edition border and was lucky enough to get the three pack for my birthday from my lovely girlfriend. These photos were again taken from an indoor location (the few outdoor photos I attempted with this film made it apparent that it was in fact too cold for good instant photos) but I think they came out pretty well.

More photos from this trip coming to this blog and the Coalesce52 blog soon, so, be sure to check back. Enjoy.

Impossible Project PX100 - 4 Photos with Sarah Starr

On Sunday afternoon I had the pleasure of shooting with a model I've not worked with before - Sarah Starr. Sarah is a model out of Pittsburgh (though currently in the process of moving to warmer weather) with a long list of credits as a model in both online and print publications. When I saw that she brought along this shirt that read "Keep Calm and Kitty On" I knew that it had to work it's way into one of our looks for the day. 

As I mentioned last week, I want to be sure that throughout my year long Roll-A-Week project I don't stop shooting instant film all together, so, I took this shoot with Sarah as an opportunity to shoot these photos using Impossible Project's PX100 in my SX70 Sonar. This is one of the original batches of the PX100 film and was shot with the lighten/darken wheel one notch towards darken, shielded out of camera, and then left to develop upside down in an ambient temperature of about 65-70 degrees fahrenheit. 

Also... even though I seized this opportunity to shoot some instant film, I of course also shot a roll of film for the Coalesce52 project which is currently being developed. Stay tuned here and over on the Coalesce52 blog for more from this shoot including that roll of Tri-X. Enjoy.
