Negatives are Positive — in the photography world that is.

I subscribe to Michael Rosso’s Film Photography podcast on Youtube — it’s a very resourceful and entertaining site dedicated to shooting film, most notably polaroid film and the insurmountable amounts of tips, tricks and fun you can have with limited gear — a polaroid, some film and tons of creativity. I recently bought a Polaroid Colorpack II camera and a couple of rolls of Fujifilm FP-3000b film to test the bad boy out. So far, I’m lovin’ it! Once you get past the tricky framing and focusing, it becomes a joy to snap, develop and take a look at what you have. In a podcast I watched earlier, Rosso talks about scanning your Fujifilm negatives to get a more contrasty image and once scanned and uploaded, you can tweak the image to your taste. Well, today I tried it out and it’s proving to be quite the venture. I for one love the rustic and beaten up look I get with some of the images and it works for what it is that I like in urban landscape photography. Here’s a few scans and you’ll know what I mean.
