Week 15b – Morgan – Impossible SX-70 Color Gen 1

Color impossible film (at least here in Gen 1) has a much stiffer learning curve than its B&W counterpoint. It is much more sensitive to light as it comes out of the camera than its B&W counterpart. I see now why most people recommend turning the exposure compensation a touch darker than expected.

I find myself less excited with many of the shots that came from this pack. Not only was it more expensive than most other stocks that I am working with, the 30 minute development time made it hard to see my mistakes and correct them. Although I hear that Gen 2 is a bit faster, I'd be curious to see what results I can get out of that instead.

On the positive note I did find a new location to shoot in, and it just so happens to be right across the street from my apartment.
