As a quick follow up to Tuesday's post on the new Impossible Gen 2.0 Color 600 test film - here are two more images that I shot that same day with Isola. Shot with an SX-70 Sonar and ND pack filter, available light, unshielded out of camera and processed upside down. Enjoy.

On Sunday I had the chance to work with Isola, a model from the Columbus area who was nice enough to make the drive up to Cleveland for a shoot. We ended up with some wonderful images and I was able to shoot a bunch of different instant film types, including these photos that I shot on the new Generation 2.0 Color 600 film from Impossible.
This limited edition 600 film is still considered an experimental film with limited release for testing (mostly to Impossible Pioneer members), but, is meant to have a increased sharpness, stability and a faster image emergence. These photos were all unshielded out of camera and left to develop upside down. Initial image emergence was definitely much faster than the previous version of this film (probably within 5-10 mins) while final development fell around 25-30 mins. The faster Image emergence was, in my opinion, very helpful in at least determining proper exposure for continued shooting.
Color from this test batch appears stable and similar to previous versions -I should note these were actually shot on a green backdrop, so that is not an odd color shift that you are seeing but a true representation with a little over exposure - but, there was a slight, noticeable color shift to the film after an extended (24 hour) period of time.
Overall, I think this film is pretty nice and a good step in the right direction. I'm glad to see that Impossible is continuing to improve upon their formulas and release new batches of film. It'll be exciting to see how the final production run of this film compares when it is released to the masses later in 2014.
More images from this batch coming soon. Enjoy.

Following up my post from Monday, here are a few more shots using the Mint Close-Up Lens in tandem with a pack of Impossible Projects PX600 Black Frame film. No real theme this time, just a few things from around the house. Enjoy.

Yesterday afternoon I decided to get out my SX70 Sonar and an older pack of Impossible's PX600 Black Frame that I had sitting in the fridge so that I could play around a little more with the Close-up Lens from the Mint Lens Set for SX70. I shot an entire pack, but for today I will just be sharing these three photos that are kind of related in content. I have to say, the close-up lens really does open up some new shoot opportunities and I'm really enjoying that particular lens attachment for still life. More images coming soon... Enjoy.

On Monday, my wife and I headed out of town and up to Marblehead (just outside of Sandusky) to avoid the insanity of Cleveland St. Paddy's day and to celebrate my birthday on the down low. Here's one of the only instant photos that I took that day - the Marblehead lighthouse on expired Polaroid ID UV film with a Polaroid 250. Enjoy.
