My ‘Roid Week 2014 (Part One)

‘Roid Week 2014 – Part One was May 19th -23rd. It was a lot of fun! Here’s my contribution to the madness:

Be sure to check out all the cool photos in the ‘Roid Week 2014 Flickr group, too.

P.S.

Get your instant film and cameras ready because it turns out that this year there’ll be a ‘Roid Week – Part Deux from October 20th – 24th. Woo hoo!

‘Roid Week 2013

What the heck is ‘Roid Week you ask? It’s a celebration of instant film! The ‘roid part is short for Polaroid, but Polaroid isn’t the only instant film being celebrated during this very special week. Sadly Polaroid films are no longer manufactured and photographers are shooting up what’s left in their stashes. The good news is that Fuji’s instant peel-apart films and Instax integral film, as well as Impossible Project films, are alive and kicking — and being put to good use during ‘Roid Week!

This is the second year I’ve taken part in ‘Roid Week. Since I was away for the first day, I only have eight photos. (According to the group’s rules, participants may add two photos per day to the pool.)

To read more about ‘Roid Week 2013 and see work by other photographers, check out the ‘Roid Week 2013 Flickr group. There’s some really great stuff there! This year’s ‘Roid Week ran from Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 19, 2013.

 

An Instant Film Photowalk in Washington, DC

Recently I met up with Frank and Brandon for a film photowalk around Washington, DC. Armed with our Polaroid cameras and lots of Impossible Project film, we walked from one end of the District to the other – and back again. The weather was perfect and we had a great time. I used a Polaroid Spectra camera I picked up from the Film Photography Project Store and I broke into my stash of Impossible’s PZ Silver Shade Cool film. To see the rest of the photos from the photowalk, check out the set on Flickr.
