would expired film give some interesting results or would it just not develop?

expired film definitely develops - normally - and sometimes gives really neat results, and sometimes just looks foggy or has strange colors. but i mean it's usually cheaper so you sould just play around

i have an sx-70 that i haven't used since my stash of time zero ran out. i spose i should start playing with the 600 stuff.

I love all the photos. I was wondering how you can change the lighting on some of these, just turn off the flash, or is there something else? I have the Polaroid image 1200. It takes spectra film I think

Three things:

One: Polaroid film is good for a while after the expiration date, like 3 years or so. The biggest issue is the developer packs sometimes dry out. If that happens, you're SOL. But 3 year old film is not something to be afraid of. The pack I found from 1986 is.

Two: I'll post some pictures of me chopping up my SX-70 for 600 packs. It's easy and your shots can look real pastel-like. I also got in touch with a crazy girl who gets all kinds of manipulation effects from 600 and Spectra film. I'm getting all giddy typing about it. Anyway, excuse me while I whore:



And three: You can set your exposure control switch to darken, to kill the flash a little. Or you can put black tape over it to cover it. Or if you just want to soften it, tape a napkin over the flash bulb. And, if you want to have fun, get some colored Saran Wrap and put a couple layers over the flash and voila, a colored flash.

Let me get off my nerd box...

Thanks! Do you know a site speciafically for polaroid photographs of nature, settings etc, not people? I don't like polaroids with people.
