as i posted before, there are some things i made but i can't post here
in the apug gallery ... more than likely they now end up at DPUG
and usually in my imagekind place ...
this image had its tones tweaked ... i probably will do it with paints and crayons
and THEN post it here but until then i can only dream
i have been doing hand colorings that i can't post here in my apug gallery.
they aren't as sophisticated as eddie's beautiful hand colored photographs. he uses oils and charcoal
and ink and pencil and creates a masterful photographic print. what i am doing is over on dpug.org.
it is half in the analog world ( i shoot it on a negative ) and the other half, well, i use modern techniques to color it.
i am new at this and teaching myself how to do it.
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.

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
Here is a recent essay of mine in the Chronicle of Higher Ed, which I suppose might resonate with some here. The link is here.

A Technological Cloud Hangs Over Higher Education
By Keith A. Williams
I was there when it happened. And for the record: I did object. I was but a teaching assistant; the decision was not mine. The decision was to replace the pendulums and other demonstration gizmos in the undergraduate
