I figured this little project deserved an entire post just to itself.
PolaPremium recently released some film for the Polaroid SX-70 that's never been seen before, called Fade to Black. Of course being the massive nerd that I am, I ordered a pack of it immediately because it is also very limited. Until yesterday, it had been chillin (literally, har har har) in my fridge for almost a month, so I decided to quit waiting for something exceptional to come along and just try it out while the light was nice.
and here you have it..
I took this photo of myself in our living room because it happened to be the right moment for it. Then I scanned it 20 times during a 12 hour period in order to catch a lot of the color changes, because after 24 hours of taking the photo, it turns completely black.
amazing right?! I swear I am completely obsessed with this film and think it's the most beautiful thing ever. I've already ordered 2 more packs to play with in the coming months.
In other news, I took a recent trip to New York and took lots of fun photos, so I'll be sure to post those real soon. I've been so busy lately I can hardly think or remember to eat.
