{snapshot} polaroids with a silver lining

cameras

So in more scenes from my big weekend in adventures of photo-taking, I took the plunge and popped my first Impossible Project film into my polaroid camera ~ the PX 600 Silver Shade.

Gotta tell you, I was so nervous, much more nervous than when loading the now gone original Polaroid 600 film into a camera, even though it cost about the same.

But once I took that first photo, the cameras above, my fears slid away as quickly as that image slid out of the camera.

I still have a couple of shots left in the camera, but due to its temperature sensitivity will be using them up soon. These are the ones I have taken so far {plus one really blurry one I haven’t included here when I got a little close to my subject}.

The line here is where the sun hit the image when I turned despite my best efforts to shield it. I  find I get the best results with my automatic camera in sunshine but have to balance that against the fact the film needs shading from sunlight as it develops.

All in all though I’m happy with the results and can’t wait to try out the next film I have in storage ~ the colour shade. And I must remember to snap up some more. {Although don’t tell anyone, but I still have some Polaroid 600 expired film in my fridge, too!}

Thank goodness for the Impossible Project.
