brief interjection. or interruption.

So, hey, guess what?

I've been shooting FILM again. You know - polaroids? Perhaps I was a bit overzealous within the last week or so, but I've shot several entire packs. Sadly, I haven't even left my house. But, I digress.

take a load off
PZ600 - the new Impossible Project film for Spectra cameras.
Check out the tones on the new Impossible Project film! It's absolutely amazing, and if I see another Spectra camera on craigslist for a good price, I'm snapping it up. I hear these cameras crap out quickly, so I need to be ready. This photo was only taken a few days ago, so we'll see in a month how it's holding up.

In other related news: I am an Impossible Pioneer. In other words - I have spent lots of money on my film obsession, despite knowing the film is still in an experimental phase. I love experimenting. Don't you? Sadly, I have not recommended anyone to the Impossible Project as yet, so I won't be able to reach the next Impossible level (Land level!). You see what they're doing? Trying to get me to BUY MORE FILM and recommend that others get on the addiction wagon, too! Good plan.

Knowing that PZ film was in the mail last week, I had to pull out my Spectra System camera and see what she can do. or he. either way.

Double exposure with spectra image film.
Double exposures! Close-ups! Oh, I got a close-up lens for the Spectra System camera a while back, but hadn't managed to try it out (I wasn't feeling the Spectra love). So fun. Loving it.

  1. Spectra's do look super cool. Never really liked tham... Close-ups in particular look ace.

  2. I haven't like them much, either. Not enough control - the viewfinder makes framing difficult, and the lack of manual focus is not a plus. Of the two I have I prefer the Spectra system over the ProCam. So far.

  3. I love these! Especially the top one. Amazing!
