Recently released was the Polaroid Po-Go Instant Mobile Printer which uses Zink Photo Paper. The (2″ x 3″) ZINK paper contains cyan, magenta, and yellow dye crystals which are heat activated to produce an image. I was curious to experiment with this new technology, but in researching the product, many people have been given this printer bad reviews.
I do not have a Pogo printer yet BUT I still went out and bought a 10 pack of paper to experiment with. Using different heat sources i was able to produce some interesting textures that might be able to be used in the future……
The paper has an adhesive backing so I stuck these images on one page in my spiral notebook so i could scan them in.
This “ZINK art” was made without the Pogo printer, just heat was used!

I took this photograph right before it rained down on me during a motorcycle trip to the Outer Banks in North Carolina in August of 2008. Unfortunately, on that particular day I spent more time huddled underneath overpasses than I did riding.

Here is my final portfolio for the object lighting class that I had first semester.
This is a self portrait done with a lens baby for my digital class at school. I set up the lighting and my dad was nice enough to take some excellent pictures for me.

Below is my lighting setup. Since I used a high shutter speed I was able to make the clutter in the background disappear
