So this project is almost done. I will be mailing out all of the rewards on Saturday so you will have Polaroids and prints coming to you soon. If you've become addicted to my (nearly) constant updates here you can of course see a more intermittent version of that on my FB page since they will soon cease here: https://www.facebook.com/ssouthallphotography?ref=hl
Also, if you watch that FB page you will be able to keep up with any future Kickstarter projects (working an idea out as we speak). Thanks again, and I'll let you know when all rewards have been sent out.
I think that makes, what, 18 Polaroids for this project? That's a good bit more than the 10 I originally planned on posting (and I took waaaaaaay more than this).
Anyway, this is Tia. When I first started taking photos and Tia saw some that I took of her co-workers, she agreed to let me photograph her. That totally never happened. That photo shoot is now relegated to being a dream for the future. But I've got a bunch of expired film from The Impossible Project and I needed to test it to see what sort of things to expect, and Tia just happened to be at work.
Took 3 shots of her Jen, who was working with Tia, but none of those worked. All three of the shots that I took of Tia came out though; we concluded that she is in fact an angel and made the film miraculously work. I even gave the first shot to her; I'm nice that way.
Joni, Late For the Prom
There was no prom. Joni was late for the shoot, which normally isn’t a problem for me. I don’t ever really have a pressing schedule, so what do I care? Well, in this instance I just got off my shift at the hotel, it was 9:30 a.m. when she got there, and I was struggling not to pass out.
Even through my lack of alertness, we managed to get some pretty good shots out of this shoot. Joni is a dance teacher (won’t hold the teacher bit against her; I was never a fan of teachers back in my grade school days. REBELLION!), and I played a couple of songs on my phone, had her dance a bit in the park.
Gotta add a bit of spice to a shoot when you need to stay awake. Never had a model dance before; I think karaoke and tequila will work for the next shoot.
