This is a continuation of my previous Scott Southall post. I received the scanned Polaroids today and I absolutely love them. Again, I emphasize how unique this photoshoot, and Scott himself ,was for that matter. Scott’s preferred camera is a Polaroid instant camera…that’s right. The kind where the photo shoots out and develops instantly. And his camera isn’t even a 90’s polaroid…you know the bulky black one with a rainbow on the side? His is even more vintage…it’s seventies wood looking and super retro. I can’t explain. Just when you think it can’t get quirkier? He used expired film for this shoot. Bad film. Just for the hell of it, to play with the odds and see which photos even end up developing. Or not developing. Or developing 3/4 of the way. You’ll see for yourself. But I love the antique finish that it gives the shots. You can hardly tell what century they were taken in…my artsy side (I’m pretty sure genuinely artsty people don’t use that word) is completely enamored with his vision and I had so much fun with this shoot. I look forward to working with him again. Check out his online portfolio if you’re intersted in seeing his work with other models. http://www.modelmayhem.com/tododelsur
Edit: I’m being too lazy to crop out the polaroid frame. Also, adding a few more at the end. I’m exhausted, had another shoot today and will update those pics tomorrow. Also coming tomorrow, a fall fashion preview! Eeek! My favorite season of them ALL!
