Wow @Churtle_VonSchlerp , someone woke up a jerk without a clue. You can have an opinion without being an ass. BTW lots of artist have used instant film to make awesome work for decades. Robert Mapplethorpe. Andy Warhol. Chuck Close...just to name a few giants and theres many more.

 

Hey @DanielRodrigue , nice work man. I like seeing live music covered with instant film. Also you should check out Lauren McClure's (laurenmcclure.blogspot.com) stuff. She's always running around dallas and shows with the cool old cameras and polaroids. She use to do a lot of polaroid camera reviews on her blog too.

I thought Polaroid stopped making film.

Yeah, these kind of suck. Not even in the tryhard, Instagram kind of sucking manner. They're just bad. Poor focus, blurry subjects, and ugly color shifts do not an artistic photo make. Sorry, dude. Leave this stupid horseshit to GvB.

 @Churtle_VonSchlerp Sorry you feel that way. I'm fond of many of these images, and their analog abnormalities AKA "ugly color shifts." That's why folks still shoot film. And most of these shots were captured on film that expired in 2008/2009.

 

Tell you what, Churtle, I'll bring along a camera tonight to the award show. Track me down, and I'll let you try a shot or two and see how well you do.
