Foggy Morning Shoot

April 23, 2011

On Wednesday, April, 20, 2011, I woke up and looked at the weather app on my iPhone (as I do every morning) and saw that it was foggy out. I had been waiting for a foggy day to get out early and take photos of the barn and landscape at 2335 McCoy Road in the fog. I leaped out of bed opened the blinds and, eureka, fog! I put Hydan in the cars eat and rushed out of the house to take some photos with a role from my new batch of Polaroid 100 Chocolate Giambarba Expired. The results were both surreal and unexpected. The Chocolate film is supposed to have a sepia tone to it, as in my other Chocolate Polaroid photos. Not this time it seems. The brownish tint is hinted at in the foreground, but the background and sky are a shade of pink. The pink got pinker as the images dried and the dark foregrounds got darker. I’m not sure if this is because the film sat out of the fridge for a week while we were in Boston or if its just a a symptom of the expired film or somehow due to the foggy conditions. Either way, I really enjoy how the fog makes the barn and the distant woods somewhat ephemeral and ghostly.
