Cassie's Waited a Long Time for This Shot

Loved it so much, she did.


Which felt good, as I've gotten a bit rusty with Polaroid, of late.


Really comes down to use, I just don't use it as much as I used to, and that really sticks in my craw. Past few weeks have been great, in that regard, been shooting a lot of Polaroid for my trip, getting back into the right headspace to take good pictures in the format.


They're all different in my head, see. Digital, medium format, Polaroid, the point & shoot 35mm I acquired in Minneapolis (thanks, Cousin Patty!), my iPhone. I'm very conscious about how I use each camera, how each one is best suited for a particular purpose.


Which means I have to adjust my thinking when I'm using any particular camera, "what does this here camera do really well? How can I use that here?"


Right here, it was all about getting those eyes, and the Polaroid, it called to me. CALLED TO ME. "I can do it, coach, put me in the game."


And when that Polaroid voice calls, I got me no choice but to answer.
