Attention, Polaroid snappers and instant photography fans! If you’ve been looking for a new film to experiment with, it’s time to stock up on some Polaroid Duochrome Films. They’re finally back in stock on the Polaroid Originals online shop!
New to the Polaroid club? Then prepare to be amazed with these cool instant films. Think of the Duochrome films as black and white photos that got a splash of vibrant color. Consider it as a nice in-between option if you’re not in the mood for some regular color instant film packs, but you’re not after plain black and white either. It looks really great for portraits but you can also try shooting other contrasty subjects with it. For best results, use it for subjects or scenes with a good balance of dark and light elements.
The Impossible Project has made Duochrome films in yellow, red, and green versions, but at the moment, Polaroid Originals has recently brought these awesome films back in the Pink and Blue versions. Interestingly, the Yellow film was made by the Impossible Project in collaboration with Jack White’s Third Man Records. This Flickr group has a nice collection of Duochrome snaps, in case you’re wondering what the other colors look like. We hope to see the other colors back soon, too!
The Duochrome Films are currently available only as Polaroid 600 films. If you want to shoot with the vibrant Duochrome films but don’t have a camera for it yet, make sure you get either a 600 camera or the new OneStep 2 camera.
Visit the Polaroid Originals website to stock up on the Blue and Pink 600 Duochrome films, and see more of the cyan and magenta-drenched snaps photographers have taken with it so far.
