Polaroid Study - Torso Study

Back when all I had was a polaroid camera, I had to make to with what I had. Oddly enough, I still love the look of polaroid photography, and still have to urge to shoot with my polaroid camera.

I love how it's not the basic see the whole face and body sort of thing.
The way you don't see everything in one polaroid adds interest.
I love your work so much. *__*

Thank you very much ... I would love to do more work with Polaroids, but they're so damn expensive.

an appreaciation for poloroid how rare! i really love these images and the order you put them in somehow makes alot of sense i tried rearranging them in my head and it was as though i had skipped a beat.

Whoa, that's an incredible compliment - thank you. I do really love polaroid - I'd shoot with it more, if only I could afford it.

isn't it horrible how exspensive polaroid is. they really should make it cheaper at least so that they can compete with digital

I'm really upset that they don't make B& W polaroid anymore. It was always so pretty.
mssquid's avatar
it did have a nice quality to it. now all that is left is the faded colours of colour poloroid, poloroid despertly needs to revamp themselves.
mckenzie's avatar
Well, they tried with the JoyCam, right? Didn't really work.
mssquid's avatar
true but i like my joycam, the film is too expensive though.

poloroid is a very under appriciated form of art .. props

Thank you very much. I want to try out some more polaroid work - it's very interesting to use.

they dont make the b/w polaroids anymore. they discontinued them a few years ago. you can still get b/w for medium format and largeformat cameras though.
mckenzie's avatar
B/W large format polaroids?
naplajoie's avatar
si, si!
you can get them in 4x5 and 8x10... and maybe 5x7... but the actual image size is like 3.75x4.75 ... i think they're cropped like a quarter inch...

I'll have to check that out.
mathilde's avatar
are they black polaroids ?! : )
I love the movement it creates in line like this
it's cool
mckenzie's avatar
Yes, they are black and white polaroids - they're from the 80's - I don't even think they make them anymore. Someone I know just had them in her freezer for about 15 years.

agree,,, don't lose the polaroid. I just bought another one at a swap meet for 5 bucks, just to have... also, look up David Hockney if you get a chance - artist/photographer that did some interesting things with a poloaroid - although his work is more about the WAY he used it, rather than it just being a polaroid.. anyways.. I digress:

keen piece you have here... I like the composition in each frame, and also they work well how you have arranged them, interesting and fresh.. keep it up!

I've said it before. Comments from a Master like yourself really goes to the heart. I have heard of David Hockney, but I could never financially afford to try the insanely beautiful montages that he creates. Hopefully one day I'll be able to.

Once again, thank you for your comment. I will keep your recommendations in mind.
