I was playing with a trial version of  the plugin for Lightroom called Exposure 5. This Polaroid 55 preset reminds me of the old days. I used to really love shooting 4X5 portraits and the instant feedback of the Type55 and the nice negative you’d get as a bonus. The border and those distinct holes on the top are iconic of images shot with Type 55.

By the way this image was a test image from our recent Ricki’s shoot. It’s too backlight to be Avedon-like, but In the American West: Richard Avedon – Photographs 1979-1984 is one of my fave photo books ever.
