“It’s slowing her down–she’s running back and forth re-composing, changing little things–She’s constructing her image,” said Curtis Willocks of Justyna Fijalska’s experience with the large format view camera with a Polaroid back. The photography club met this weekend to explore the capabilities of the 8×10 camera.
“I remember mentioning to a class ‘8×10 photography’ and 80 percent of the class had no idea what I was talking about,” said Willocks, adviser to the Photo Club.
“I feel like this type of photography will disappear one day,” said Justyna. “It’s more fun for me. I can control the process more,” she said pausing to wait for the image to form on the Polaroid film.
The photo club is open to all FIT students.
