Disneyland Bribe


When my daughter was 3 years old we lived in a community that had a dry sauna by the pool.  I wanted to do a photo of her with a towel on her head like a “big girl” but knew it would be a challenge.  A little Disneyland persuasion did the trick.  The entire shoot lasted 18 frames as the towel unraveled.  Photographed with my Hasselblad 500CM on Kodak TXP, natural light with one fill card.  Yes, we had a great time at Disneyland!

Polaroid SX-70 Expired Time Zero Film



Polaroid discontinued Time Zero Film in early 2006, the announcement was made this month in 2005.  I remember buying about 10 packs and throwing them in the fridge.  This was close to the time I went digital and let a bunch of years go by before shooting polaroid.  Some had dead batteries, which is really disappointing, but my fault for waiting so long.  It feels great to be able to work with it again, I’m not hand manipulating like I did in the past, I doubt it would work but still taking them apart and rephotographing them.  As my last few packs disappear I’m glad instant film still has a following and I’m thankful that IMPOSSIBLE is keeping the film alive.
