Clifton Hill Rail Bridge



Looking under and across to converging rail tracks in Clifton hill. These were taken some time ago with Impossible Project Silver Shade Film.

The first two shots are Impossible Project’s PX70 Colour Shade film and I don’t think I need to say why I would not buy it again. For reference the third shot is taken with expired Polaroid film in a different camera. I do wonder whether the camera may be the cause as the SX70 used has not been tested with any other film but I believe that is unlikely instead it is a dud batch of film. The photos are continuing to change and I’ll update with some later scans soon.

These were all taken at the Royal Melbourne Show.

A play with impossible project’s experimental film for polaroid cameras, these were taken with their PX 600 Silver Shade UV+ film. While I find the results pleasing the film is expensive especially as it is unpredictable and the photos themselves in a month have degraded terribly with the darks fading and the overall tone turning orange. I also tried their Px 70 Colour Shade film and achieved abysmal results which I may post in future along with a scan of a degraded silver shade shot. I will most likely buy this film again in future but only for a specific clearly defined project as the cost is prohibitive especially considering the chemical instability.

Note: the fourth and fifth images are by Shane Constable.

I have another new camera in my bag, a fuji instax 210 and I love it. It is an instant camera like a polaroid but with a wider aspect ratio. I took it for a test run on Cockatoo Island and am very pleased with the results. My scanner is not brilliant and a lot of the glossy depth of the image surface is lost in these scans.
