replicating the polaroid look.

hi, I really like the aesthetics of the polaroid pictures, and was wondering how you guys would go about replicating it.

I've tried the highpass and blurring a little bit the blue channel, but I had no Success.

any ideas?

cheers

Re: replicating the polaoid look.

I'm not quite clear on what you are trying to achieve. What do you mean by "aesthetics of the polaroid pictures".. as opposed to what?

In your sample, the only thing I note about the excellent replication of the borders of a typical polaroid shot is the blue tint. If my memory serves me, the border frame of a polaroid was white which over time oxidized to a cream color.

thanks for replying.

if you see the picture (which is an orinal polaroid) besides the border, I think the're some sort of glow and color behaviour distinc of polaroids. I just can figure how to achive it digitally.

Re: replicating the polaoid look.

depends on the type of polaroid. best bet is to put them side by side and replicate what you see.
