Roid Week Aftermath

Okay, so it’s been a while since Roid Week, but somehow I haven’t been in the mood to blog. Let’s remedy that, shall we?

It was incredibly fun. I shot four films I haven’t used before, and I shot a lot of it, as you can see.

Roid Week Extravaganza

It looks like a lot, but granted, there’s still an enormous amount of Polaroid film in our fridge, and whil I’m a bit careful with not wasting any, there’s no reason letting it go to waste. Plus, there’s no such thing as a ruined Polaroid, right?

So, seeing all those photos, there must be some leftovers. There sure are. That’s why I’m declaring this week Roid Rejects Week. A week filled with all the good stuff that didn’t make it into Roid Week. Someone suggested opening a group on Flickr, but for me it’s really just about the spirit. Come join me, will ya? Let’s see what we have for a start.

Artistic East-German Building

Good Morning

Yep, that’ll work.

To sum up, I found two really nice new films, the 669 and the 779, luckily I just stocked up on both.

  1. I just bought a SX-70 and am excited to try it out.. but my mind is spinning with all your camera and film mentions..! I’m not sure what film you can even use in a SX-70, and I’ve heard it can be adapted to use 600, but I wonder once it’s adapted if you can still use TZ or others…? Anyway, your stuff is beautiful and I wanted to ask what film you’d recommend I mess around with. šŸ™‚ I’m hoping to do more artistic stuff.. nothing too crisp or ‘nice’ šŸ™‚ Thanks!

  2. You can use 600 in an SX-70, but for that to work you need a filter, some use it without a filter at all, just turning the light setting all the way to dark. Your mileage may vary on that front. Using a filter doesn’t ruin your chances of using ATZ film, the filters I have either go on the film cartridge or are attached to the lens, but with an adhesive, so they do come off again.
