Zion National Park Polaroids 2

I had so much fun taking these Polaroids in Zion. I don't mind lugging a camera bag loaded with five different cameras, because sometimes the images are just magic. Sometimes they just have a life of their own. The first three images below were taken on a Keystone 60 Second Everflash-- a big hulking camera. But its a workhorse. When "nicer" Polaroid cameras have let me down, the Everflash has been ever faithful. Lame joke, I know, but its true.The film is known as Chocolate. It can turn any number of tones between pastel blue, pink, and brown. At times it shoots like a monochromatic brown-white film, but at others, other shades come through. Over two days of shooting it in Zion I feel like I got quite a variety. 

This last two photos were taken on a Polaroid Spectra camera. I cropped out the white border of the scans to show just the photo part of them. This is on some of the newer film from The Impossible Project. I really like their black and white film. (Who am I kidding, I like all their film!) They've come so far and I can't wait to see what they yet have to pull out of their sleeves.

Chrissy and Suzy

Here are some of my analog shots of Chrissy and Suzy. Chrissy is such a beautiful mom, and it was great to be able to get a few shots of her with Suzy when she was super tiny. These two were shot when the other kids were running off some extra energy with their dad. It was much easier shooting a little tiny baby that couldn't get away, even if she just wanted to sleep through the whole thing. That being said, I think that the quick moving targets make you hone your skills faster. 

The first two shots were taken on my Canon Canonet QL, and the last was taken on my Holga GN.

Zion National Park Polaroids

Three images, taken from the bridge at Canyon Junction of Hwy 9 in Zion National Park. These were taken right around dusk this past Saturday. These were captured on my Polaroid sx70 camera, using px70 PUSH! film. (I'm having fun playing with film from The Impossible Project.) It was a lovely, albeit cold day at the park. After taking quite a few shots on the bridge, I walked around taking in the evening winter beauty of a snow-covered Zion. I love the transformation that a little white covering can do to a place.

Meeting Suzy

 What's not to love about a brand new little baby? They are just so sweet and darling. And they can't run or roll away at that age. They're the perfect subject.
These are the just the photos that include the newest member of the Lee family. More photos to follow of the rest of their little gang.

I will upload my analog photos of this shoot soon. All of the above photos are taken on a Nikon D60.
