    What kind of processing is this?

    I was hoping somebody could tell me (she wouldnt) what she is using to make this photo look this way. Seems she is in a pool for Praktica cameras, but I have the feeling its photoshop work. I love that old haunted look of some of her B&W as well as some of her color. Just wanted to know what she might be using to help get that look. Im trying to get pictures to look just like this.

    To me, they just look like normal film, no photoshop work, just film's integral charecteristics, perhaps Fp4 or similar - why not send her a flickr email and ask her for a definitive.
    Ive got some similar results here: http://pa.photoshelter.com/c/paulcoo...000NDgZIk1Nkgs

    Ah ok. Hmm... I think they look great. Ive been wanting to get pictures very similar. Blur and dust etc... nice old spooky look.

    hi nev

    just get an older camera
    and shoot it wide open
    you will get blur and shallow depth of field.
    old folders or box cameras will look like this.
    shoot in flat-light / overcast days
    you don't want bright sun or deep shadows.

    have fun!

    great tips thanks. I was already recommended in another thread to try and get my hands on a Kodak No. 1 Folding Autographic, as well as some others. Do you know how wide open these cameras will shoot? f4?

    dunno nev some lenses are faster than others .....
    stand process your film in dilute print developer
    so it is bullet-proof and make contact prints
    you might surprise yourself how nice your images will look ...
    the grain will be enhanced dust and scratches all the imperfections
    you might want ...
    it might take a bit of experimenting to see what time/dilution/developer
    will do what you want ...

    have fun
