fp-100c negatives.

Jacopo knows a special procedure to get negatives from the waste of the FP-100C peel-apart piece. we hadn't used that technique in a while and we wanted to try it out on the latest FP-100C's we took last saturday. the scanned negatives look very different from the instant photos.
FP-100C scanned negatives:

✻ these images come straight from the scanner - without any alteration.
I find it interesting to see how much the film sheets tones are brighter than the ones of the instant photographs: the slightly overexposed shots look very overexposed and the slightly underexposed ones look almost correctly exposed here. I love the experimental feeling that this kind of technique gives to the images.
P.S. I am not as good as Jacopo when polishing films: the third negative was ruined because of my clumsiness.

  2. The results look really interesting! :) I actually like the overexposed quality of the images, somehow the lightly exposed pictures are nice to look at. <3 But how does the technique work, is it a form of polaroid photography?

  6. These are so beautiful!!! I love the vintage feeling in these - like I was watching pictures of my parents when they were young in the 60's. :)
