Aesop Fable

Figured I’d throw up the Type-55 Neg after a night of drying and flattening. There’s news that there may be a New-Type55 that’ll be in production — the blog of progress is here. 
The Polaroid version seems to deal well with just having some warm water rinsing off the excess chemical. However, the negatives are easily damaged I’m sure. High-res

Polaroid Type-55 Test I, Grant Hodgeon, 2012
So we have some spare Type-55 Polaroid film and it’s ridiculously beautiful, for those that don’t know it creates a stunning negative that doesn’t quite have the latitude of regular film but just has this….beauty to the tones. It’s such a delicate film that the best thing you can do is immediately rinse it in photo-flo, dry it and scan that sucker, just in case. 
This is the first test polaroid that came from the 4x5 I’m experimenting with right now, what you see is the street behind the studio I work at. High-res
