new scam?? odd stuff? I googled snippits of the bad english as well as david photo/james photo to see if it was the same as some other bad scam but got no hits. I am tempted to email back and say yes I sell it just to see what happens. However, just incase it isnt clear I don’t sell polaroid film.
Today I shot with a model named Alicia whom I have worked with a number of times, but always on standard ordinary commercial catalog shoots. Today I really wanted to play with all my film cameras and such so 85% of the shoot was shot on old cameras. This is a just a smattering of the few digital/Polaroid shots that I took today. I will get more up when the film gets all developed.
Some Canon 5d shots
These are from the Polaroid Land Camera shooting Fuji FP100C
Type 600 shot on the SX70
More Polaroid Land Camera shooting Fuji FP100C
This is the analog product of the day. We have just about every (good) kind of film format known to man :) 120, 35, Type 600, Pack film, Type 55, etc…
Anywho I am off to a pub for food.
Just 29,630,127 seconds to go…. except this is a countdown clock that I can really get behind!. Introducing The Impossible Project. this is something that i will be watching very closely for the next year. It would seem that some people have decided to try and pick up where polaroid left off!!
“We aim to re-start production of analog for vintage Polaroid cameras in 2010. We have acquired Polaroid’s old equipment, factory and seek your support.”
“Impossible b.v. has been founded with the concrete aim to re-invent and re-start production of analog INTEGRAL FILM for vintage Polaroid cameras…. Impossible b.v. has acquired the complete film production equipment in Enschede (NL) from Polaroid, has signed a 10-year lease agreement on the factory building; and has engaged the most experienced team of Integral Film experts worldwide.”
WOW THIS IS AWESOME!!!
This is looking to be what I falsely hoped polapremium was going to be, instead of the one off/old stock, money grab that unsaleable slapped out there. The Impossible folks are upfront about what they are doing and if i dare say they look as though they are the answer to keeping integral (IE type 600) polaroid in our lives for the long term. Go check out the site… send them feedback…give em shout outs on your blogs….lets make sure that these folks can at least make a run of it.
I know i just posted, but this started as a reply comment on this post, but it turned into a long rant So I figured it should be its own post.
I thought long and hard about Polapremium this morning and I ended up even more disappointed. I was looking for long term and I instead affronted with just how temporary it all is. I have a rule, if it costs more then $3.00 a shot I need to be making good money at it, or it better knock my socks off in some other way. Most things that I would buy from Polapremium unfortunately doesn’t meet that code. I don’t mind spending extra to support people/businesses doing cool things, but I think I will take all the money that I could have spent at polapremium and use it to buy more of Fuji’s instant stock on a long term regular basis. My feeling is, lets support the long term guy, the guy who is going to be around for a while. I am going to stick with my normally attractive and funny long term girlfriend, instead of dumping her for a fleeting romance with a super model with a coke habit that will last an intense week, but be left in the end with nothing but heartbreak and regret.
My Omega 4×5, the 360 Land camera, and I will happily shoot our Fuji FP100C with fantastic results and well into the foreseeable future.
