Impossible Film – Photo No. 5

I recently acquired a Polaroid SX-70 and binged on buying film from The Impossible Film Project. I’m five shots into this thing, and wondering whether I’ll get the hang of it. I understand that Impossible Film is quite sensitive to light, so I shot a picture (with the recommended exposure setting) and immediately shielded and put it away in a pocket close to my body. I am seeing firsthand that Impossible Film does not like the cold. The photo below was shot at Lincoln Center (during Fashion Week), in New York – however, it was about 40 degrees but felt colder with the wind, so I’m sure that have had something to do with the result. I’m going to have to put my new little toy away until the weather warms up, just enough.

    I like it though, it looks like it could have been taken years ago.
