Five Original Polaroids from Publicity Shoot [SOLD]

Before the days of digital photography and access to an instant image on a camera’s display screen, professional photographers couldn’t see what they shot until the film was developed. God forbid if the film came back and nothing was usable and the whole thing had to be re-shot! So, pros would shoot set-up images using a Polaroid Camera. Everyone would gather around the Polaroids, pass them around, and blah, blah, blah about styling, lighting, hair, makeup, etc… “Shoot some Polaroids” was a phrase heard on every professional set in the world, although I don’t think it happens so much anymore, and less and less with each passing day. Sadly, the vast majority of those one-of-a-kind Polaroid images from countless photo shoots over the decades hit the trashcan – people usually didn’t think of them as anything important or savable at the time. However, our girl Rue ALWAYS tried to snag the Polaroids from her photo shoots. Here is a wonderful set of five from some big budget shoot in the late ’80s or early ’90s. These 25-year old pictures are still in excellent shape and would be perfect for framing. Each one measures 3.25″ x 4.25″, and all five will appear on one Certificate of Authenticity.
