I’ve apparently been doing this for the past five weeks, but thankfully it’s almost over.
Tonight was the last meeting of my summer Intellectual Property class, and I’ve only got the take-home final to complete, which I plan to do tomorrow. Then I can get to work on a couple of new photo projects, which will be…
…ha! You’ll have to wait. This is just the teaser.
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.
Wires have been soldered, batteries re-inserted, and shutter tested.
The Polaroid is back!
I take a snapshot to check the image and exposure:
I’ve done a few of these transfers and they do come out darker than the print. It could be the exposure, the paper, the timing, or the subject matter. I clearly need to work on this more to know how to more purposefully create an effect, but it sure is fun to experiment.
How do you like to push your photographic boundaries?
