Very nice digital manipulation. Was this done with Adobe Photo shop? I love the way it turned out. Great subject to. #600

This was done with a Polaroid Sx-70 camera... Time Zero film. I color adjusted in Photo Shop . I just lightened it up a little and then framed it with a Plug-in in Photo Shop.
Thanks very much for looking at it... I'm pretty new to this whole process.

Hi Cathy,

I love it, too. I just recently saw some images like this at the local bookstore and thought that they were manipulated Polaroid emulsion transfers. But it sounds like you do something else with a SX-70.

Can you briefly describe the process? I'm interested...

Thanks! #881

Polaroid emulsion transfer is a different technique all together. With an emulsion transfer you float off the emulsion from peel-apart Polaroid film and catch it on a substrate (acetate) and then manipulate it. With the Time Zero film , the emusion is manipulated before the photo finishes developing.
Thanks for the interest !

I've never heard of this process, so I'm fascinated with the outcome. Very interesting...reminds me of looking into a fun-house mirror at a carnival.
