Polaroid Images – Grand Canyon

I can’t go to far without having some sort of analog camera with me and my recent trip out west to the Grand Canyon was no different. In my bag of cameras I brought along 3 Polaroid cameras a few analog cameras, an Ansco Viking (6cmx9cm) & Ansco Pronto II (2 1/4 square).

My film of choice for the trip was:
Marathon 120 ISO 400 (8 rolls)
Polaroid Type 100 / expired (2 packs)
Impossible PZ 680 color (1 pack)
Impossible PZ 600 Silver Shade Cool (2 packs)

I really enjoy shooting with analog cameras, it’s very hard to explain why I like it so much other than that is how I started in photography many years ago. Even though I have fully embraced the digital world and shoot digital professionally, my first 18 years of shooting professionally, I shot film & I still shoot film every chance I get.

It was not easy bringing my assortment of cameras with me as we hiked everyday but I had with me a LowePro Orion (waist bag), and it worked perfectly. I hope to post several images from my analog film cameras soon … but for now, here are a selection of Polaroid images from the trip.
