    Antarctic pics


    4x5 Sea-ice by Alex Gard, on Flickr

    4x5, 150mm, Red 25 Filter, HP5+, T-Max Developer 24 degrees for 14 minutes. Scanned neg, no adjustments

    I am new to LF and have been developing my first few negs from my trip down south. Definitely a lot to learn but still having a lot of fun in the process. Here are a few more which didn't turn out as good (semi-stand development)

    Nice, Alex. Are these processed on the reclaimed darkroom onboard ship?

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Nice work. I really like the last one that didn't turn out "as good." It speaks to me somehow.

    No these were not processed on the ship as I didn't have my chemicals on board with me. I was supposed to be on the trip they're on now as a person was on compassionate leave but came back as they needed the work. I hope to be back on for the next trip in March and I'll be taking all my processing gear (including a Jobo machine from CATLABS!)
    These were all processed at home, using a dark-bag which is really awkward but I'm slowly getting the hang of it.

    Processed IN a darkbag? I am more than impressed. Please tell me that's easier than it sounds.

    sorry, I meant I loaded the sheets into a MOD54 in a dark bag. Which is a helluva lot easier than loading 120 onto reels in a darkbag.
    I've been in touch with a local college so going to use their darkroom while I'm on land, just need to get a couple of pieces and chemicals to get this jobo machine up and running.

    Very nice images... How did you get the chance to get there, if I may ask? It is maybe one of my biggest dreams to visit Antarctica once in my life.

    The fifth image is a winner for me; it is dark, brooding, malavolent and edgy, if lacking the true representation of Antarctica; the picture could be of a scene of anywhere there is water, low hills and snow. If anything is needed, that little blip of a 'berg at lower right could be bigger to give it a more powerful representation. The image is one I would frame and display. I'm ambivalent about B&W for Antarctica (though a number of expeditions have had people exploring the landscape with IR film too). A lot of Australian photographers shoot Antarctica in colour because of the rich and powerful colours and tones in dramatic light of ice floes and bergs; one photographer has at the moment slipped my mind but produced a profoundly beautiful portfolio on Velvia using medium format in morning and evening light about three years ago. Others, namely Australian LF worker David Tatnall, working in B&W, concentrate on the often dramatic and sublime shapes and ephemeral character of chunks of ice in specific shoreline-to-sea locations.

    I too love the fifth one, and can imagine it looking wonderful as a large print. I find it refreshing to see Antarctic photos in monochrome. Well done, and I look forward to seeing more.
