Welcome back to our newest addition to the Impossible Blog: Impossible’s Analog Travelog! In this series, we’ll be showcasing fantastic Impossible photos taken on voyages the world over. This entry comes from Juli Werner, who recently visited New York City and brought along some Impossible film…
At the end of last year, my husband and I took a quick trip to New York City. It wasn’t our first time visiting, but it was our first time back in almost 8 years. Since we figured we couldn’t make up for 8 years gone in 3 days, we picked out a few things that we absolutely had to do and left the rest up to chance. Our main mission: visit the Impossible Project.
I packed light for the trip, taking one Spectra camera and my trusty SX-70 Alpha 1 SE. It was hard to decide on films. I planned on buying some there, but I also wanted to use up some of my stash. I ended up taking PX 70 Cool, PX 100 UV+ Silver Shade test film, PX 70 Color Protection and an older pack of PZ 600 UV+ Silver Shade Black Frame. I took the Mint Flash bar along as well and it came in handy for taking some photos of friends. While we were at the Impossible Project, I bought some of the new PZ 680 Color Protection which I promptly starting shooting and totally fell in love with it.
The weather was sunny and not too cold; perfect for shooting Impossible films! I put most shots into an inside coat pocket which worked quite well for keeping the film warm but not overheating it. All the Impossible films are great for New York City. The new color protection films were a breeze to use and I was amazed by the true-to-life color, even when using the flash with the PZ 680. The silver shade films, especially the black frame, were great for capturing a timeless feeling especially when shooting architecture.Read all
