My my. This book cover is breathtaking, isn’t it? The fact that is all about Diego Uchitel polaroids makes it 100X better! Mr. Mark found this book while browsing through the land of everything awesome (aka Anthropologie), and obviously he couldn’t resist to purchase it.
More radness after the jump!
This book is such a fountain of inspiration! Not just for fashion photographers, but also for lovers of stunning imagery (calling all ma pinners out there). The reason why I am featuring this book today, is because I JUST got back from Salt Lake City and unpacked the little polaroid we received as swag from one of the sponsors at Alt Summit (yeah, we almost pissed ourselves when we saw it). It totally inspired me to plan some sort of polaroid project.
Do you love polaroids? Do you have one at home? No? Say waaah. Ok, I suggest you go to your nearest flea market and try to score one, seriously, you won’t regret it. If you have the money you can spend some good dollars over at The Impossible Project – still, check Craiglist and Kijiji because more often than not, a granny is getting rid of hers. Granny’s garbage = happy hipsters.
TIP: I’ve been using my polaroid to take “test pictures” of my food posts, it’s a great way to actually see in “print” how the whole thing will turn out. Give it a go!
