This is, I hope, my third and final Polaroid Blog web site. (Actually, it's number four if I count my Word Press site.) I'm leaving this page at the top so that first time visitors can get a feel for what can be found on this site.
First and foremost, I no longer shoot Polaroid cameras. I know, weird! Right? Now that Fuji no longer manufactures peel-apart film there's no more film left to shoot. Although that's not entirely true, I don't want to pay the asking prices for today's film. As of this post, a box of Fuji FP-100c (10 shots) is going for $28. While I have no problem with the law of supply and demand, I simply don't want to spend that kind of money on a box of film given what I like to shoot. So, why the blog? I will always have a soft spot in my heart for instant photography. I grew up with it (and thought it was pure magic), and it brings back lots of happy memories. I have 100s of instant photos of our daughter and I hope that she will grow to love and cherish them as much as I love and cherish the photos taken of me.
So, what am I shooting with these days? My iPhone. I am as excited about mobile (and digital in general) photography as I was about the Polaroid camera and film. I am also learning about video and editing and look forward to perfecting these skills. I have and use a number of accessories with my iPhone that I will write more about in a future post. A lot of my work is posted on Instagram as well as Eyem. Use the links below to find me.
Included on this site are a number of instant film projects I have worked on over the years as well as scans of Polaroids I've inherited. The following link will take visitors to my old Word Press site, which contains (I think) useful information on Polaroid cameras and accessories.
My favorite page is the Found Family Polaroids. These include both integral and peel-apart Polaroids taken of me over my years of growing up. I've also included a post about my framing technique. My framed Polaroids are float-mounted and this is a service I will gladly offer to others. Stay tuned for more information.
Finally, everything on this site is my own opinion. I'm not paid to push or promote anyone's product or service. (If I am, I will make note of it in my posts.) When reviewing photo equipment and gear, I will do my best to be fair and honest. In addition, I plan to write posts about the apps I'm using. These are as important as the equipment. Without them, I wouldn't be able to post yet another picture our daughter. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions or comments. Instant photography experts abound as do experts in general. I maintain this site because I want to share with others my passion for Polaroid cameras and instant photography. Take it or leave it, but thanks for stopping by and taking a look around!
