Hey everybody,

Okay, here's my first post on the new-again GG:



It'd been quite some time since I had shot last. Been trying to work on the business end of things, how to market myself, etc., etc. I was feeling rusty, so I shot these a couple weeks back to get things going again.

This was shot with the last pack of Polaroid Type 59 color film I had. The color was off, hence the color splotchiness here and there, but I shot this type of subject matter in this way 'cause I thought it might actually work in its favor. Anyways, c&c always appreciated!

Sam

Good to see you back Sam. That's an interesting shot. If I'm not mistaken, I don't believe they are making that film anymore.

I'm pretty darned sure they're not making any more Polaroid films they've shut down.

Yeah, Type 59 was phased out earlier in the year. Looks like their 600 film will be the last to go...

Sam I just checked out your site, your fashion shots (especially 1-9, and more especially 12 and 13) are exactly the type of thing I've been getting into my mind recently, and want to do more of. very cool site, and good idea on the iPhone friendly version cause I've gotten the "I can't see anything" from people a bunch as well.

many props!

Julian
