Polaroid Love!

A ton of awesome work has been submitted to both Booooooom Projects so far, so if you haven’t already browsed the Project Galleries, you’re really missing out. Kalli sent me a couple gorgeous photos last week for Booooooom Project #2 and I quickly emailed her back to see if she had any more I could see. She actually went to the trouble of scanning in a ton of her polaroids and even signed up at Flickr just to share them with me.

So here’s some more incentive to get involved in the projects – from time to time I will feature work, submitted to the projects, on the main page. Here’s a quick look at some great polaroid photography by Kalli Anne.

Kalli mostly shoots with a Polaroid 600 se and you can tell shooting with it is quite an adventure! This kinda work right here is why the 56 megapixel camera won’t be on everyone’s Christmas list. There is a real warmth and sense of nostalgia captured in an imperfect polaroid. Love it.
