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.
