Polaroid Transfers vs Pola Painting

greenspun.com : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread

This is a new area of photography for me.

I'd like to know the difference between Polaroid Transfer and Pola Painting technique that Jeff Smith www.lightingmagic.com talks about.

Thanks in advance Chuck

As far as I know, the Pola painiting is the manipulation of the emulsion in the Time Zero print as it hardens over time. This image is taken with a SX70 camera. Transfer work is the actual transfer of the developing print to a substrate. Emulsion lift is the transfer and manipulation of the emulsion to another surface. All sort of relatted, but not exactly. Hope this helps. Cathy
