For some reason, this didn’t get published back in December. Oh joy! Here it goes!
On Cyber Monday, The Impossible Project offered a whopping 20% off its entire online store. That was the perfect opportunity for me to purchase a Lens set that I’ve been focused on for quite a while (pun intended) …
This video is actually my first post-narrated one! I’ve tried to make it sound a little better by using the iMovie “more bass” equalizer on the narration track, please let me know how you like it! 😀
Back in November of 2015, I ordered a garment called “Knight Hoodie” from an American online shop that sells just this one piece of clothing. I had discovered the product while browsing 9GAG, in a post with the words “want” and “nerdgasm” in the title – my thoughts exactly. Previously, I had acquired an inexpensive black cape from Amazon and had been positively surprised by its quality and sleek appearance. And now, I had a stunning hoodie to match that would eventually start an ongoing self-portrait photography series. Continue reading “Dark Knight” self-portrait series part one→
This limited edition film behaves exactly like the B&W 2.0 film – but it develops in black and red, resulting in interesting and eye-catching images if you choose the right subject. This is also the downside of this film’s unique chemistry: not everything that looks good in B&W does in B&R. I’ve found that subjects that already contain the color red in parts of the image work well. What is also a small drawback is that it was only available with a black frame.
Unfortunately the film is currently sold out. You can however still check out the store page here, so there’s a chance it’ll be restocked eventually.
UPDATE: You can now watch a recording of the Impossible I-1 camera keynote on Vimeo (embedded below). I have also added many interesting details about the camera to this post, including detailed specifications that were just posted on the I-1 website.
Sections (roughly): 00:00 to 10:00 (about Impossible and why they made the camera), 10:40 (first look at the camera), 13:30 (flash), 15:00 (app), 17:00 (example photos taken with the I-1), 17:20 to end (live demo).
As you have probably already heard, Impossible unveiled their IP-1 I-1 camera at the Bloomberg Businessweek Design Conference on April 11th. I promised you to write a post after the announcement to cover all the details that were unveiled. Here we are, 12 days later, and it’s not like I forgot to write or something. The problem is that there‘swas not much to report until now: Impossible annoyingly chose to postpone any info outside of some basic points of interest until May 10th, when the camera goes on sale. Luckily, the BW keynote video is now public, meaning I was able to add tons of info to the post. Enjoy!
As you know, I have a passion for instant photography and the cameras connected to it. I have personally tried nearly every format of Polaroid films that has existed (except the pocket, 500 and 80-type films) and played with cameras from most formats. Impossible has been teasing their upcoming instant camera on Twitter for a few days:
Welcome back to the final part in the “Polaroid shooting Tips’n Tricks” series! This time, I’m going to explain different things that you can do to protect your image after taking it.
In case you haven’t read the previous posts in the series, make sure to check those out as they include tips on choosing the right camera & film combo as well as setting things up to achieve a great looking photograph.
Yep. I bought an original Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera (with Sonar AutoFocus)!
I’m actually on holiday in the UK atm (’till Saturday) and of course I took my SX-70 (and the 660 AF). The results have been impressive! As I can’t scan the images here, you’ll have to wait until at least next week to see them, tho 😉. Sorry!
In case you were wondering what I was doing the past weeks, here’s your answer: I was out and about to take some summertime Polaroid pictures!
For your enjoyment: my latest Polaroid series,
“Summertime is Polaroid time!” (taken on Impossible B&W factory seconds)
As you might have noticed, there are only six photos in this series even though every Impossible film pack contains eight images. That’s true!
The first image that’s not included here shows my sister (1.5 y old) and her friend, the neighbour’s daughter (2 y) playing together. I gave this image to our neighbours.
The second shot shows a woman making huge soap bubbles. She loved it, so I decided to give it to her!
What do you think of these pictures? I’ll meet you down in the comments!
