Day 162: Not-so-heavy lifting.

Along with practicing my prints and transfers with the Polaroid, I am also trying to be more comfortable with the emulsion lifts as well. I’ve discovered a good adhesive to work with, did a few test runs with crappy or unusable prints, and then gathered up the guts to start in on the better images.

    So impressed with all this technical talk. Don’t understand it, mind, but still impressed.

      It always sounds more complicated than it actually is. I think this is how I’m slowly building up the courage to develop my own film. I just have to keep telling myself that it is surely much easier than my imagination is making it out to be 🙂
