Several of my friends are into Impossible film right now and I have really loved seeing their results. I was at the film
dealer store, staring into the freezer, trying to decide what to get. I stared at the boxes of color 4×5 sheet film for awhile, deciding if I wanted to fork out the cash. Then my eye traveled down to the row of instant film. The Impossible film caught my attention and in my head I was deciding which one I wanted to gamble my money away on. Did I want the sheet film? Or the instant film? I decided on the Impossible film.
I put the pack in my old Polaroid and immediately wasted a shot by accidentally clicking the shutter button. Then I packed the camera in my bag and took it with me to the lake. Here are a couple of shots I was happy with.
I think, in the end, I realized why I never buy Impossible film. I went through this same disappointment two years ago when I was first lured by its siren song. I am left with the same words as I was then: “I don’t know.”
