These are some polaroids that I took with my sweet new-to-me medium format camera. Lately, I've heard multiple people say that photographers shouldn't get caught up in the hype of what camera/lens/etc they use or others have because the tech isn't the end result. That being said, I love my Mamiya RZ 67 Pro II. I've had to reorder my list of top five things to save in a fire to include it.
We had a polaroid camera when I was growing up. I remember thinking how cool it was to watch the picture appear from the darkened square. These pictures are from the last two weeks and there was a definite learning curve to using the polaroid back with the Mamiya, but I love it. Polaroids combine the look and feel of film with the instantaneous availability of digital and include their own color and contrast quirks as well.
1. Expired Polaroid 667 B/W Film, 2. My first polaroid with Sylvia's Polaroid 215, 3. Nick took this one of me on Sunday, 4. One of my first shots with the Mamiya (turned out a little wonky but I think the colors are cool), 5. Double exposure: My silhouette and Nick's face, 6. This one got an accidental dunk in ice cold water before it was ready, 7. Another happy accident of exposing film
