FujiFilm FP-3000b

Added on by Pauline Shypula.

A little while ago, I saw that Amazon had temporarily lowered the price of the now discontinued FujiFilm FP3000b film. It's an instant 3x4 film in Black and White. I couldn't have been more excited to test it out.

My model is Sam, the burgeoning lumberjack.

I forgot that the film speed is 3000 so they're a little overexposed, but I still love them. I wish I had known about this petition to save the film from extinction a while ago. I better make some money and stock up on the now dwindling stock left over and do what I can with them before they expire.

And what would my post dumps be without a few pictures from my iPhone?

Rocketship Comedy at Flat 12 Bierwerks

Added on by Pauline Shypula.

A few days ago, I had the privilege to see and photograph Matt Braunger at Flat 12 Bierwerks in Indianapolis, IN. As of late, I've been photographing some of the events put on by Rocketship Comedy at Flat 12. Here are some of my favorites from shows past while I fall behind on editing the photos from last week. (Note: These are edited much more heavily than what you might see on Rocketship Comedy's page just for the sake of differentiating them)

Film dump day is the best kind of day

Added on by Pauline Shypula.

So I dropped my film off at the one Black and White developing lab in the city on Monday. On Wednesday, I was clutching for rolls of film waiting to be scanned. I invested in a new scanner and I haven't quite gotten the hang of properly scanning negatives, I'm still pretty stoked to share some of them here... and of course more later.

As I type this, my order from Lomography is out for delivery and 10 rolls of film will be arriving on my doorstep in the next 6 hours I presume.

Getting a Polaroid 100 to Work

Added on by Pauline Shypula.

A long while ago, a relative of mine gave me two vintage Polaroid Cameras that he had purchased for me at a flea market. We didn't know if they worked and had no idea how to test them out, so I just displayed them on my shelf. The first was a Polaroid 800, and the second, a Polaroid 100 (since you're probably pretty astute, you already know how the rest of this post is going to go, but I'll continue regardless). After finding the work of Bastiank on Flickr, I realized that someone is still producing film for certain Polaroid cameras (other than The Impossible Project). After some research, I found that the camera I have sitting on my shelf could work. The other, the 800, took roll film, which is no longer in production and the sheer mechanics of loading the film were beyond me. I opened up my 100 to find it dusty and containing really old and thus very expired film. I didn't stick around to play with the expired film since it smelled so bad. I found the battery within old and crumbling. After getting a replacement battery, I purchased some new FUJIFILM FP-100C and enlisted my boyfriend to be my model / test subject.

I added the hipster font to go with my hipster blogger-photo of my hipster camera.

I also found that I had one exposure left in my Polaroid Impulse camera, which takes Polaroid 600 film. The one in my camera was obviously expired, but I decided to give it a go. The results:

Pretty nifty! It looks like I'll put off getting new film from the Impossible Project and try to scoop up some mildly affordable Polaroid film from eBay while I can.
