Dani - Expired Polaroid Type 59

A few months back I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to purchase a portion of a batch of expired Polaroid Type 59 that was for sale on Ebay. Another great analog photographer (Kyle Michaels) led the charge of purchasing a large lot of the film and was nice enough to offer me the chance to purchase a share for myself. I’ve shot a decent amount of black and white large format instant films over the past couple of years, but, haven’t until now had the chance to shoot any of the old color stock.

While I haven’t shot a lot of this film yet (at least successfully) there are a few photos that have ended up being decent. One of those shots, featuring Danielle, can be seen below. This particular image was shot in studio with a constant light set up. The 80 iso film was rated down to about 40 (ish) and exposed using a Graflex Crown Graphic 4x5 setup.
