What is Real?
This video is really excellent. What do you have that will last, that is tangible, that is real? I shoot film, it gives us something to hold, to feel. It helps us remember. I’d love to shoot some for you.
So I ordered a Polaroid proof back for my Nikon F3HP a while back but haven’t had a chance to throw it on and use it. I finally convinced myself to commit to a pack of film and threw it on. Here’s the first shots I took with what I have dubbed as the “Nikolariod”!
The image comes out the size of a 35mm negative but with the depth of film and contrast of the SLR lens. The tan smear is caused on purpose by me partly pulling out the film and leaving it for a bit, then pulling the rest of the way out.
The setup is a Nikon F3HP with a Polariod back put on it. Check out the last photo to see it.
The Film is Fuji FP100c Pack Film.
