Shake It Like a Polaroid Picture

W A R N I N G !

If you use more than one of the following terms to describe yourself, then this post is probably not for you: uptight, righteous, born-again, puritan, wholesome, innocent, naive or ultra-conservative.

On the other hand, if you describe yourself in these terms: naughty, voyeuristic, naughty, experimental, naughty, raw or maybe a even a little naughty, then this post will light your fire.

Now that we have that cleared-up, welcome to Fiftyrooms, a photographic site dedicated to Polaroid’s and young women. More than a dozen photographers are working under the same concept, to use Polaroid cameras to capture the most interesting and alluring photographs they can — as witnessed in the photograph below by Torben Raun. There is nudity in some of the images, which is sometimes done tastefully and sometimes not, depending on the photographer.

I enjoy the natural-though-gritty quality that the Polaroid’s produce, it is a nice change-of-pace from the highly stylized and photoshopped images flooding the commercial market. Fiftyrooms is a great combination of contemporary photographers with old-school technology.
