Digital Tomfoolery.

This is not a real photograph.
I mean, it’s real in the sense I used a camera to make it – a film camera, at that – and it’s a real scene, but it is not a Polaroid photograph. It’s a fake. I used an application that you can download online for free (whether you have a Mac or a PC). It’s called The Poladroid Project and it turns jpegs into polaroid-looking photographs. There’s even a flickr group where folks put their experiments up.

While I usually avoid this kind of post-process, I like this one. I think that digital treatments have their place in photography and if used sparingly, they can create some really cool stuff.

For what it’s worth, the unadulterated scan of this negative lives here.
