Self Portrait at Express / New Britain, Ct / June 2013

I recently copped a new polaroid camera that has a focusing window (Polaroid Land Camera 103). It's too much work guessing the distance between the camera and the subject. Anyway, I was able to create this portrait the other day while working at my new job at Express in the Westfarms Mall.

In the process of this image I wanted to scan the polaroid negative to see if I had more latitude in adjusting the shadow detail. I should've placed the negative in a container so dust would not attach to it, but looking at it now it looks pretty cool.
