Shooting Film: Happy Birthday, Edwin Land! A brief ...

An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail.    Edwin Land

Edwin Herbert Land,  (May 7, 1909 – March 1, 1991) was an American scientist and inventor, best known as the co-founder of the Polaroid Corporation. He invented inexpensive filters for polarizing light, a practical system of in-camera instant photography, and the retinex theory of color vision, among other things. His Polaroid instant camera went on sale in late 1948 and made it possible for a picture to be taken and developed in 60 seconds or less.
