Instant Transmissions


A retrospect of how fun it was doing Polaroid transfers.

A couple of years back I did an extensive portfolio of Polaroid transfers made from slides taken with my Canon AE-1 Program camera. The slides were taken in the UK, Ireland, Greece, Turkey and Egypt all of which I visited or lived in between 1993 and 2001. The transfers that were selected for a show were digitalized and blown up to 13 × 19 inches. I love doing transfers and have been bummed about Polaroid jumping ship. There are more of these transfers to be found on my album. I hope you enjoy them!

    The transfers are awesome, but I don't see how this is a tipster. Shouldn't this be in the "Blog" section since there are no instructions, tips, how-to's and so on. This could make for an awesome tipster though.

    Thank you all for the nice compliments. I did not realize that the lomo people put it in tipster but I am grateful nonetheless.
