St Pauls Cathedral Polaroid

st pauls
It has been a while since a new Polaroid has been posted. Winter seems to drain the light and colour out of London, two things that you need for a good Polaroid photo. Stay tuned for more colourful Polaroid Manipulations as Spring approaches.

In the meantime, this is St Pauls Cathedral photographed as usual with an old Polaroid SX-70 camera on a rather drab day. I manipulated the emulsion while it was still wet to give it a painterly feel.

Cool manipulation. Like a real painting of a famous artist.

you should consider posting some sort of before and after (maybe take two identical photos and then manipulate one of them and show the other as is). It's very cool, and it would be even neater to see the comparison between the two.

just an idea...

good idea. often we need to manipulate the images while they are still fresh, which means we do it in a cafe, bench or on the bus or train! so we can't scan the before image in quickly enough. we might take a picture of the 'before' image with a digital camera if we're out and about!

Fantastic idea! I have to try.
