This week in my Vlog I looked at creating a SX-70 Polariod Manipulation. This is an old film technique using a Polariod SX-70 camera and Time Zero Film. Once a picture is taken with a Polariod camera and the print has come out the image is still developing. During the development process the image can be manipulated by applying pressure to the mylar envelope that encases the image. This pressure and manipulation will cause changes as the chemicals are forming the image. At the end of this process a unique image will be produced.
For choosing an image for this process it is recommended to use an image that doe not have a large area of negative space because the outcome of the image works a lot better. I went against this advice with my start image. I decided to use a picture of a Tulip I took last week.
Do you want to know how to use this manipulation? You’ll need to watch the video below.
Here is the final image form the video.
I liked this image but I wanted to add something more. I used an action from Rawimage which is part of a Polariod Generator pack.
What do you think of the final images? Let me know using the comment box below.
