over the past few years i have been using a falling plate camera
with liquid emulsion paper negatives.
i love this combination
it gives enough of everything to keep me happy.
recently i have been goofing around making things that remind me
of 1920s and teens cubism ..
before i actually paint on my paper negatives
i figured i would goof around in PS, sorry, its a dry run
maybe the final will look like this ?
maybe i won't follow
attached is a pair of sheets of ilford 125 4x5 film.
both sheets were stand developed for 26mins
the blank one in ansco 130 ( 10cc : 1L )
the other one sumatranol 130
for years i have been told i exaggerate my findings, and that my developer only works because of the ansco 130.
just to set the record straight i processed both the sheets at the same time
easter sunday we were driving home
and i was luckily driving shot gun.
i watched the sea pass by
its depth was deceiving ...
the whole group, or most of it will be on my blog, feel free to check it out !
i remember seeing tiles
they were old and in old houses
they were on walls and floors
they were like drawings
if i could make them myself, i would
so i use paper instead as i wait for materials and inspiration
the original image was a lumen print
the colors appeared after i inverted the scan
the others ones are variants of the image
not sure if will post anymore of the images where funky colors appear
yesterday i put some clothes pins on a sheet of hand coated photo paper ... i left it in the overcast afternoon "sun"
all night and this afternoon around 1pm (sunday) i brought it inside, again, after being left now in the morning overcast "sun"
i scanned the image and posted the black and white scan in the gallery ...
since about 3oclock i have been playing with it.
i added tint and multiplied it, from 1 4-square to nearly 900 of them
