As promised the results of my little experiment with the Impossible 8x10 positive and chemical pod and a sheet of Fomapan 100 18x24 film. Because of the size I put a sheet of a4 paper in the back to prevent the developer paste from messing up my processor. Unfortunately the focus is way of but I like the photo anyway. So I you have some Impossible positives laying around send them to me :-)
Above photo's are straight scans. No editing besides a little tweak in the scan software. Below some interpretations:
The top 2 photos are scans of the negative. The murkines is the white stuff from the chemicals that I could got of very well with ff-ing up the emulsion. In the original you can see where I scratched the negative. Next step is to contact print the negative.
In the last couple of years I have been working or playing with Impossible 8x10 instant film and New55 instant film. Of course not everything is a succes. And I have to admit that I was the one to blame. For example taking the negative out of the dark envelope of the 8x10 film by accident. Or something similar with the New55 where the envelope was pulled out completely out of the holder.
So I ended up with some chemical pods, receiver sheets and no negative. What do you do? You keep them a couple of years before you start exsperimenting with them :-).
The other day I have prepared the Impossible 8x10 pod with some Fomapan100 film. And I stuffed the tongue assemble of a New55 film into a Polaroid darksleeve with the Polaroid receiversheet. And a sheet of Kodak Tmax 400 en the New55 chem pod. Coming weekend I will make some stunning selfportraits. (Ahum!)
I already did some experimenting with New55 chems and receiversheet combined with Kodak Tmax 400. I let it develop for 3 minutes. I am quite pleased with the results:
I will post my results later. So stay tuned!
