I had a blast in South Africa bringing in the 2016 New Year, and I am glad that I purchased an old Polaroid Land Camera to bring along! This specific camera was made in the late 60's/early 70's, and is still in great working order. Although they aren't very time efficient and they collect a crazy amount of dust, these Polaroids have an image quality that just can't be matched with today's digital capture methods. Check out the Polaroid photos that I took while in South Africa by scrolling down on my website's home page. Fellow Kendall photography graduate Bud Kibby shared a video link with me that details the process through which one can obtain a usable negative (excitement!) from the Fujifilm FP-100c instant polaroid film that I was using. Here is the video, try not to be distracted by the sound effects.
Someone didn't want his picture taken! I always love a chance to get back to my roots, which are film photography and taking funny pictures of my two cats. This photo was taken on 35mm color film with a "toy camera", which is (in this case at least) a camera that is completely made of plastic. This was the last photo on a roll of film, thus the markings across the center of the image.
