Insane? Yes. Art is insane.

The hell... does the size of something that large even justify the whole 'instant' aspect? That's insane.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/27/2009 05:27

Wow! You're a compulsive eater! :)

Actually, Pola films don't keep for very long, one year at most. Keep them in your fridge, but not in the freezer!

Also, the larger pro films (peel-apart) have disappeared almost as soon as Polaroid announced they'd stop. Those are what I used, and I didn't make any stock...

I feel sorry for the great artists whose art was all very-large-format 20x24" pola...

Edit: hadn't seen the 'big news' link in that page, it's from last year. Since all peel-apart films were actually cut from factory 20" rolls, there might be hope, although I don't see how you can keep a whole factory running with this only outlet.

manu, i just recently bought 50 polaroid films in vienna... should at least last some time... 

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/26/2009 15:14

Quite fitting actually, since Polaroid Corp isn't much more than a living corpse these days.

Unless... Edwin has heard his worshippers' prayers!

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/26/2009 14:18

Everlasting gratitude and admiration go there.

 Polaroid photos were pretty thick  All the development chemicals, etc were in the picture itself or (the film).  It was all-in-one.

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/26/2009 14:00

fat as in 3d, it has a wierd raised surface to it.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/26/2009 13:52

It's a Polaroid template.

Nothing else is worth mentioning in photography. Well, almost.

xXHalfieXx (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 10/26/2009 08:47

Well, you can't exactly rip it. No transparency allowed.

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/26/2009 08:07

I asume we can edit the template as long as it keeps the shape (make it look old/ripped/realistic) right? because I agree with elk on it being way to fat looking

TioLuko (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/26/2009 07:17

My cats and the zombies will be good friends xD


Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/26/2009 05:08

looks like a gameboy template rather than a photohraph template

(a photograph being that thick, why adding shadow/highlight line...)

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 10/26/2009 04:34

This is just wrong.  Zombies should have no intellect what so ever.  They are neither friendly or menacing.  They just be. 

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/26/2009 02:33

yay, I'm off this week so...

tripnfelt (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 10/26/2009 02:17

I totally have a zombie love polaroid of myself
