Polaroid Graduation at Smith College

Smith College on PX70 Film

This past weekend one of my best friends finally graduated from Smith College. I personally graduated from Smith a few years ago so it was a fun experience to go back and relive graduation without it really being a reunion year.  We had good time going to Illumination Night and going to the ceremony the next day with Arianna Huffington as the speaker.

I decided to take a nicely re-skinned folding Sonar SX-70 with me and some PX70 Color Protection Film from The Impossible Project. The camera was having some issues with the rollers and the Sonar is out of wack. I did manage to fix the rollers a bit by pressing the apart with my finger so the Polaroids were no longer getting stuck, but I had to use the camera in manual mode the whole time due to the Sonar issue. Nevertheless I was able to take some amazing photos with it.  Below is my said camera which I managed to re-skin myself!
