An Attempt at Ophelia

I have been obsessed with Ophelia for years and years.
I have dreamed of doing a conceptual Ophelia photo shoot for as long as I can remember and I finally decided to try my hand at it a couple weeks ago.
I used a variety of polaroid cameras and different types of film to capture something I intended to be artistic and unique.
Polaroid film inherently has those qualities which is why I chose to photograph in that style.
I will say upfront that I did not get exactly what I had envisioned but I really enjoyed the exploration of the idea
and now have a better idea of what I want to do the next time around.
After fantasizing about this shoot for so long, I knew there was no way I was going to be satisfied with my first attempt but I fully intend on revisiting this concept again, in the near future.
There are so many directions I could take this...

For this particular session, we experimented with milk.

I used a variety of Impossible Polaroid Films including:
PX 680 Color Shade First Flush
PX 70 Color Shade
Spectra Softtone
PX 600 Silver Shade

these are beautiful! Ophelia!....sigh....
These could quite possibly be the greatest photos I've ever seen. Beautiful!
