Black Slide Inspiration
Today I shot the last shot from my pack of PX silver shade ff film from the impossible project. I have been using my Polaroid Sun 600. I've had some interesting outcomes, and a great deal of fun with it. The film is light sensitive as well as temperature sensitive. It has been extremely hot and humid this summer, so I shot right away trying to get a sense of what I would get. The first images had strong orange tones. On a day when the weather was not quite so hot, and less humid, I got an image that was little less orange, more of a sepia tone.
For my last shot I tried something that I had read about somewhere on the internet, unfortunately I am sad to say I can't remember where. I put the photo in the refrigerator immediately after I shot it. In doing this my shot almost had a look of a very low saturation color shot, after a bit of time out of the refrigerator it became more monochromatic - it was probably the best outcome I have had so far.
I have some PX 70 color film on the way, can't wait to see what happens!
