With the discontinuation of Fuji's beloved FP3000B black & white instant film just around the corner (April 2014) what better Christmas present for someone than a few boxes of this soon to be film of the past. This will no doubt cause all land camera lovers to get nervous at there being only one instant pack film now available, the FP100C colour.
Well it's that time of year again, cold time! And this means your Impossible Project photos will be super temperature sensitive. So be aware that if you'd like a cooler look to your photos leave them out in room temperature or colder, but if you'd like more of a warmer tone keep them in a shirt pocket or in a warmer area of your house or studio.
Last week we had a Winter Impossible lift workshop. We had a lot of fun lifting the emulsion of the Impossible Instant photos onto all sorts of different surfaces: pre-coloured water colour paper, silver paper, tissue and regular papers, canvas and even glass! Add your name to our list if you would like to be contacted about the next lift workshop.
IMPOSSIBLE WORKSHOPS - JANUARY
There will be Instant Impossible 8x10 workshops January 14th and 16th. Each person will get their own 60 to 90 minute time slot and are invited to bring a model or still life subject from home. You will have free access to lighting from our Rental Department to use in our upstairs studio, and the 8x10 camera and processor required for this film. The workshop fee is $30 which includes instruction and an 8x10 Impossible Film sheet of film to shoot. Should you decide you'd like to take more photographs, they will be $20 each. Contact Nicole in the Film department for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
