Impossible Project B&W Polaroid 600 film - a review by first time Polaroid shooter Bryce Wilson

September 22, 2016

'FilmNeverDie (http://www.filmneverdie.com/) owner Gary Wong gave me some Impossible Project 600 B&W Instant Film to shoot photographs in Melbourne on a Polaroid 600, then talk about them.


The Polaroid 600 B&W Instant Film is rated at 640 ASA (ISO), and offers strong contrast and fast development times. I like the detail that the shadows retain on this film, even in areas that are definitely overexposed.

I enjoy shooting reflections and architecture with black and white films, focusing specifically on hard, straight lines and artificial details. Bright glass looks great on this film, although in future I will pay special attention to darker shades of glass where light does not reflect as strongly.

Packets of Polaroid 600 B&W Instant Film are $35.00 AUD (http://filmneverdie.com/collections/polaroid-600-films/products/polaroid-600-black-white-film-white-frame-beta-2-0) (~$4.35 AUD per photograph) each, and the price is a serious reason to make every shot count. Be wary of bright areas/objects - think about exposure all across the frame - especially when using your Polaroid camera's onboard flash, or on bright days.

My favourite shots are seen throughout this post.
