I don’t often pick up my polaroid cameras. Some people have a real knack for making magic with them, seeing the shot and just knowing it is right for their sx-70 or land camera. I find it a medium that lends itself well only to certain subjects. I like film and digital’s ability to be controlled, so I can set up a shot and know it will come out a certain way, the way I’m envisioning and designing in my mind. But as I do admittedly also enjoy film for the often unexpected results, I embraced the one click of the polaroid this week and let my inner control freak take a nap. It simply meant seeking out the quiet moments and calm subjects that allowed me the time to nail that tricky land camera focus.
A few of my fellow muses joined me, motivated by the Roid Week 2012 event, and here is what developed! In the end, I’m glad I was reminded to dust off the old 420 land cam. Did you get in on the action? Share a link to your roid week fun in the comments!
