Polaroid 600 SE | Test Shots & Thoughts

I’ve had the itch to shoot film lately but didn’t want to have to wait to send out the film to get developed, so I started searching for high quality professional Polaroid cameras. I decided to rent a Polaroid 600 SE to play with. I love the ability to be able to change the aperture and shutter speed. The 600 SE has no light meter built into the camera, so what I did was bring along my digital camera and used the built in light meter. It wasn’t the best, but I was pretty close and film is pretty forgiving, the highlights retain a lot of details.  Here are some images I captured around town and some behind the scenes photos from a recent shoot. The film I used was Fujifilm FP-100c. Right now I’m testing out the Polaroid Land Camera 340. Though it’s not a professional camera, it’s still a lot of fun to shoot. Look for that blog post real soon.The Polaroid 600SE with the Mamiya 127mm lens

Forest Falls Engagement Photos | Ann & Evan » Orange County & Los Angeles Wedding Photographer - […] Ann and Evan were referred to me by Rachel and Logan and from our first meeting I knew we were going to have a blast shooting. While talking to this sweet couple, I realized that Evan and I have a deep love of the movie The Big Lebowski. It’s always fun to be able to drop random quotes from that movie and have someone else know what I mean. Connecting with Ann was also a breeze because she’s very sweet and loves to bake (and I have a major sweet tooth!). She brought us these amazing little homemade “Hot Tamale” macaroons and the most mind blowing molasses cookies with hot chocolate. I am beyond excited for their wedding coming up in October! If you want to see the type of Polaroid camera I used for this session, as well as some behind the scenes and test shots, check out that blog post here. […]
