sometimes you have to merge three or four technologies
to make up for the fact that you don't have a way to do things
the "right" way, but then again is there really a "right way" to begin with ?
made this this morning
and it will be the first of maybe a handful of strange things to come ...
i NEVER photograph in color so this is really
a treat .. doesn't help i am color blind as well
tried doing portraits like this the other day but my
figitty subjects moved so much that well, they came out pretty bad
if i had one of those national color stripping cameras .. much easier !
i have a bunch of b/w film rather than the gizmo
and seeing they can't be compiled together i probably won't
here are a few more tri colors i made today
extremely fun, and easy as long as you have identical and unmoved negatives
went to the lighting guys today and got some more gels, much easier than the swatch book

the last time i tried to do these it was an utter disaster
( like when the cow went dry )
but this time it worked like a charm, and i didn't even use the right filters
the device i used was not a film one, this was just a test
and severe burning of film will happen soonenough
i dont' print color, so i had to do a modernist approach
apugger mark anthony and his blog photo-utopia.com
gave me the inspiration to do this ..

i've been on the long haul to use up every bit of film and paper i have
and while it has been a new years resolution of mine for awhile
i think i am getting to that goal sometime soon.
i am almost there, there IS light at the end of the tunnel.
soon enough i will pare down most of my personal shooting
( and hopefully portrait work ) to using only 1 camera and home made emulsions
and hand coated papers ( and glass negatives ).
while i enjoy
