I’m approaching a year on this project. Still having fun & still taking a monochrome image a day.
I’ve been making (creating) Polaroid Image Transfers for YEARS. Creating a transfer never gets old, it is fun every time. The idea of a Polaroid transfer is interrupting the process of a Polaroid peel apart image and transferring the image from the negative to another substrate. Through trial & error over the years, I’ve found that these steps below will give me successful transfers over and over. I like using a smoother substrate (watercolor paper) than one that is course, the image transfers much easier onto a smooth substrate. One of my first Polaroid Image Transfers.
I have an upcoming blog post explaining the Polaroid film (Type 88 / square) that I used to create this transfer.

Yashica Electro 35 GT
I can’t believe the month of shooting with this rangefinder has come to an end. It was a fun month of shooting, easy, but fun since the GT is an aperture priority camera. I’m a big fan of shooting with minimum depth of field but typically with a 35mm SLR camera not a rangefinder. It was a little harder shooting (trusting my focus) at f/1.7 or f/2 with the Yashica rangefinder. I put 3 rolls of film through the GT this month, 36exp, 24exp & 32exp. The first roll was Arista EDU Ultra 400 36exp. The second roll was an old roll of Kodak 400 24exp and The last roll was bulk rolled Arista EDU Ultra 400, that’s why it was only 32 exposures.
The Yashica Electro 35 GT was released in 1969 with a full black body paint instead of the satin chrome finish like the other Yashica Electro 35’s in the series.
At the time of this post, I have not processed any of the film I shot. I will follow up with a selection of images from each of the 3 rolls.
As a reminder … #12cameras12months is the project I’m currently working on where I I’ve selected 12 cameras from my collection and I shoot with 1 camera every day for a month. I’ve not done so well with my reviews or follow ups … but I have been consistent in shooting every day with my cameras in the project. It has been fun & challenging … shooting with film is always fun! I’m super excited to announce the camera I’ll be shooting in April. April will be fun! Check my Instagram for the reveal!
