i feel really attached to 600 film and have 1 box + 2 shots in my 680 left. I've been trying to not feel so attached to that box in the fridge and just want to shoot it, but feel the rite of passage when it's finally done.
beautiful portraits - i love what's happening with the impossible film.

Fernanda

ohh, my! this are the most beautiful shots i've seen on impossible film! thanks jen for sharing! ❤
ps- i can TOTALLY relate to how you feel..the polaroid heartache..getting lost in the way..finding oneself back..

brooke

they were complete nincompoops not to publish these incredible images. I'm glad that you got inspired by this amazing shoot to refocus and clarify what brings you that inner *whoosh*.

cause that is what life is about.

Joy

so adorable! is there absolutely no way to get more film?

Oh Jen, stunning. But I am not surprised, since you always blow me away. I haven't shot my sx-70 in over a year and keep hoping new film will come soon. And you know, every morning when I make my coffee I look at one of your pikas hanging on the wall. Xo, Rach

This post both makes me smile and breaks my heart. I've been adoring your photos/blog/world from afar for quite a while, and thought I should say hello. I hate that our world has less access to "instant" beauty. Thank you for keeping the dream alive for so long.

I felt such a deep sense of sadness when I shot my very last box of 600 film last year. Although TZ Artistic kept me happy for a while, I still missed the 600. As a consequence, I find myself not indulging in my love of photography half as much as I used to, but I have promised myself that I will at least start buying TIP film more often now. I'm completely in love with the Silver Shade UV+ film.

Jen, I sincerely mean this. You have been a huge inspiration to me. Your work adorns my walls and I love seeing it there.

I look forward to seeing all of your future work.

jen

thank you so much carol. i actually answered some interview questions recently about shooting this new film. as i was responding a thought occurred to me - i really, REALLY love the challenge. i think if we can step back, realize that it's just not (obviously) 600 film, and start seeing it for what it is, you will find a creative breakthrough. the film has beautiful tones, and i'm learning to embrace the inconsistencies as gorgeous little flaws that add to the composition. digital perfection is such a bore - we need more film like this - film that will surprise us ;) xo

Carol

I agree that the tones are amazing! I've yet to sample any of the color stuff yet. Maybe soon.

I find digital so uninspiring I still have images sitting on my computer from 2 months ago that I need to edit for a friend.

lisa

found you from design mom. for my work I used to use polaroids and i just cleaned out a closet and found a pack of 600 film. checked on ebay and thought of selling it there - but honestly if you want it i will send it to you as a gift.

let me know
lisa
