save the polaroid wink
i am not one of those people who have years of polaroid to show my love for this art form. i have my polaroid history and that special polaroid wink though.
the wink is far more tighter than any other wink you get from using a camera. it’s tighter because you’re balancing this boxy thing in your hands (both of them most likely) and you’re also trying to set the shot up. but you want it now and you don’t want to waste any more time. so you wink a little harder, for extra balance and concentration. then, click and whirr. that polaroid wink helped.
as many polaroid aficionados know, polaroid has announced that they will be stopping complete production of film from 2009. some wonderful folk have set up save polaroid and if you are a photographer or admirer, you should take a picture of yourself and explain why polaroid should be saved. there is a group for such things.
