Polaroid PoGo™ – ZINK™ photo paper


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!

RCC Object Lighting Portfolio

Here is my final portfolio for the object lighting class that I had first semester.

Lens baby

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.

Shot with a Nikon D300 @ ISO 100

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