Following the Polawalk in Fort Worth on Saturday, armed with three different analog instant film cameras, I set out to document some of my favorite performances, people and moments of the 2012 Dallas Observer music awards showcase. The shots with an orangey-yellow hue were shot using a Polaroid Spectra SE camera loaded with Polaroid Softtone film that expired in October 2009.
According to The Impossible Project, the film was produced in 2008 during the final production run and refrigerated since the date it rolled off the assembly line, making it the last original Polaroid instant film still available. The shots with the color frames were from a Polaroid SLR 680, loaded with PX 680 Color Shade Color Block Rainbow Pack from The Impossible Project, and the double exposures were with a Polaroid 180 using Fuji 100c film.
