The course will be a masterclass in Polaroid manipulation and creative techniques. To begin with, we’ll cover the types of Polaroid camera and films available – advantages and disadvantages of each and what to look for when buying your own.
We’ll then through the basic camera functions and physical attributes of the cameras that are open to manipulation, pitfalls, and tips.
To kick off the day, we’ll all be going on a short Polaroid walk in the local area, gathering material to work with later on.
The course will cover:
Polaroid emulsion lifts with Polaroid and Impossible Project film
Transparencies with Impossible Project film
Light Painting with Polaroid cameras
Multiple Exposures with Polaroid and Impossible Project images
Physical image manipulation with Impossible Project film
