A break in the time line - Polaroids

Polaroid cameras can be used by anyone simply to point and shoot. That does not mean, however, that experimentation is impossible. At first I mainly did point and shoot. This limitation led me to try different angles, lighting, times of day, and subject poses. Later, I would have people pose in certain ways and then paint on the Polaroid in a want-to-be mixed media fashion. I also tried double exposure, which is difficult with a Polaroid camera because you must stop the film from coming out entirely and take another picture. In return, one photo will be half double exposed, and another will be half exposed. I love Polaroids.
