cam damage series is brilliant, well done guys (and, generally, your tumblr is always a good place to be back)- cheers!
she’s absolutely fantastic to work with, with that perfect combination of effortless allure… and goofball. we’re already trying to figure out when we’ll get to shoot again, so there’s more on the horizon, eventually.
impossible PXE advice. to get the silver tone definitely shield from the light. i also like to stick it in my armpit. i know that sounds weird, but the heat helps.
thank you for the advice. the film is weird in general, so armpits hardly even seem out of the ordinary in comparison anymore. up is down, cold is hot, cats and dogs, living together.
when i went to the Impossible storefront back in September, the woman i talked to suggested keeping not only the film but the camera itself in the refrigerator at all times right up until the moment of shooting. that does sound like the most inconvenient malarkey ever, but it did seem to help with the shots i took last weekend. they were actually silvery black and white once they developed (for a day or so at least - they’ve faded a little to sepia, but nothing like the orange blowout of the PXE pictures).
i still maintain the IP are irresponsible for releasing what essentially amounted to test batches of film, hoping we, the full-price paying consumers, would embrace the “quirks” of the film the same way people like lomography and Holga light leaks. it seems like their newer batches have corrected more of the problems, but i’m still hesitant to drop $24 on what could still amount to inconsistent beta runs.
as i’ve said before, i really want them to succeed. i really do. and if they get their shit together, i will happily support and promote them. and they’re almost but not quite there… yet.
