holga fn/polaroid back/type 85 polaroid film (expired)

This is one of my last shots of type 85 film (I have 21 left.) What you see here is the positive, hastily fixed in the field (literally), so the blobs of fixant and the specs are from the process. I haven't scanned the negative yet, but I can already say that it's a much more subtle piece than this positive. However, it's the postives that I love most about 85; they are these tiny little imperfect objects that you can never replicate. I will miss this film terribly.

I like this black and white photo so much.. the composition is very balanced with the tree close to the middle of the picture and the hay.. a wonderful picture of a landscape.. I would like to be there now

I love this film's quality, the natural blur movement puts the hay wheels, which are normaly such a static feature, into motion-
alas i have never even touched this film and its now almost gone.

thank you for your considered comment :) yes, this film was really special. it's unlike any other polaroid film i've used (the 55 is the large format version, but i don't have a large format camera), and it's sad that it's gone. it's a real production dealing with this film, because you have to fix the positive and clear/dry the negative, so it brings a little darkroom into your polaroid experience. i will miss it so much :(

I've no idea how you attach a pola back to a holgs..oh my! tech/machinery-wise I suck.
this is really nice. And I recall and own images of this kind of stock... beautiful stuff.

there is a pola back you can buy; but now that they stopped making the 80 series, you can get another back for 669. i have a stash of 88 and 89, so i'll use up that before i get the other back. i'm such a pola addict! but 85 is so special--it makes me sad that it's gone :(

I like how the title places your attention on the smallest element of the picture. On my main account I had a conversation with other deviant once about how titles can affect the way a piece is seen or interpret, I see it as a part of the piece, because even if you leave the untitled tag on, that says something.

Thank you so much! Indeed, the hay is what attracted my attention for this photo. I shot some other images with different cameras, where the hay was far more the focus, but this camera is so good at making a grand scene. Still, the title was meant to force the viewer to consider the hay. Thank you--your comments are always so thoughtful :heart:

And it makes you consider the hay indeed.

You're welcome. :)
