How to use the negatives of Polaroid peel apart film.


My first shot with this film

was on my daughters first birthday. I stopped by my photostore when i was getting the birthday cake and they had some new film. It was expired (2009) Polaroid Sepia ISO1500 film, made in Mexico and distributed by the Impossible Project . So I bought two packs and I shot them. After seeing the results I headed back and I bought the remaining stock (another six packs).

I have to say that the magic goes a bit away when you scan these polaroids. The originals are glossy. For some reason I kept the toxic negatives. And when they were dry I scanned them and inverted them.

The funny thing is, the color of this film changes when developed at high or low temperatures. The higher the temp, the more ‘color’ it has. The negatives of course are affected by dust, touching etc.

Last week I was shooting outside and I took a plastic bag to store my negatives. Some came out untouched nice and clean, others destroyed. I scanned every usable negative.

So, if you want some nice vintage results: go find some Polaroid Sepia 1500 and let me know were you found it.
