Polaroid has always held a special place in my heart. I used to go around with a Polaroid camera all the time when I was kid and take snapshots of everything around me. Even though I still have that original camera (and few others picked up along the way), digital has dominated my professional shots and my iPhone has replaced my polaroid camera.
When the opportunity came in last quarter's Large Format class to work with Polaroid again, I dived right back in! Polaroid went bankrupt and Fuji no longer makes 4x5 sized instant film, so the results were hit and miss at best. It took a lot of my patience to get the shots I wanted but the results are just as stunning as I hoped.
