A couple of weeks ago my best friend and I took a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway from Town Mountain Road in Asheville up to Little Switzerland. I took my Fuji Instax Wide along for the trip and got some pretty good results.
The Fuji Instax film definitely loves to bring out the blues and greens.
One of my favorite types of the Polaroid 600 film sold by Impossible Project is the Color Frame Color Film. I am really happy with the way these photos turned out. I am slowly tweaking my techniques and realizing what works and what doesn’t with the Polaroid 600 camera and Impossible Project Film. There is about as much science that goes into using this film as there is photography ideas. Enjoy.

When I first started diving into Polaroid photography and discovered the Impossible Project line of film a few variants of the film made an impression on me and I knew I had to give them a try. One of those variants was the Lucky 8 edition.
The standard pack of Lucky 8 film is 7 deep metallic red frame color prints and 1 metallic gold print. I was very happy with the way these photos developed for the most part. With a few I did attempt to get a more distressed result. The first 10 seconds after a polaroid pops out of your camera is very important. I usually am very careful to put them in my pocket or turn them over on their sides. With this batch of film I attempted to be a little “rough” with them during this time to see the varried results.
I like the way this photo turned out. The “rough” handling gave it a bit of character.
But if the distressed look isnt what you are going for, the film is also perfect for giving you vibrant colors and sharp retro feeling images as well.
I thoroughly enjoy using Impossible Project Film. It allows me to explore new shots with old scenery and to be honest a lot of times, you just never know what you might end up with. The results vary and sometimes they arent good. But others they are simply stunning.
I have been out at the lake with my fuji instax wide film camera today and I am very excited to share the results. If you are thinking of diving into the instant camera arena I cant suggest this camera enough. You can find them fairly cheap now and the film isnt that bad either. The results are fantastic. Enjoy.
