Polaroid SX-70 Color Film

I was surprised that nothing in this print was in focus. When I had this frame in the viewfinder, the bunch of flowers at lower left was perfectly in focus.

My recent outings with my SX-70 were a lot of fun. But also, the times photographs didn’t turn out the way I expected (as here) lead me to want to keep using this camera. I’d like to build my skills with it and find its limits. Finally, the available films are good enough to permit it.

    As I started to read your description, I thought you were going to say you were disappointed with this photo. Which disappointed me, because i really love it! So i’m glad to see you do actually feel the same way.

      I was disappointed that the photo didn’t come out sharp as in the viewfinder. But just look at that color!! I want to keep working with this camera to figure out how to get the most out of it.

      So then randomness is part of the SX-70 charm? Well, I’ll keep shooting the camera to find out!
