Shooting Medium Format Polaroid Back

It is truly a wonderful feeling for any photographer to get instant results, and Im not talking about tethering to big screen, chimping to cameras LCD or even the instants from SX70 and its new Impossible project "which has it's own beauty". Im talking about the Polaroid film made for Polaroid land cameras and Medium format cameras with special Polaroid backs.

In Colour and Black and White film there is only one brand left which still makes the film and every night and before I go to bed I pray to God *Flying Spaghetti Monster* that fuji not to discontinue *knocks on wood*
So What is so good about shooting medium format with Polaroid backs?

  1. If you are only using film in the shoot, you get to see a preview and a reference to the light & photograph.
  2. You get the full control of exposure since you are shooting with medium format. 
  3. You can test different lights, exposure (ex: Lit backdrop, not lit backdrop etc...) and even multiple exposures without using your films, and get instant results. 

So here are the photos I shot and worked on from the last time I used Polaroid back on my Mamiya RZ67 ProII.
