Film Overload: Type 55, Impossible 8 x 10, and let’s throw in some Fuji Acros

I met Todd, the Owner of Shutter Plus Light Camera store where I acquired my 250 Land Camera. He shoots tintypes in his studio as well as stocks impossible film (polaroid) and a variety of vintage cameras.  View more of my film work on the commercial site

Here are a couple shots of Todd with a few of his cameras.  Photographed with the Calumet C1 8×10 camera on Impossible silver shade film.

The image below was shot on the calumet c1 with the 4×5 reducing back.  With extinct type 55 Polaroid film.  Looking forward to the New 55!
