Return to the Darkroom


Environment Portrait
Lana Aquarelle, 140 lb.
Salt Print, 2010


After many months of avoiding the darkroom, I've found a process that has me all fired up again--making salt prints. Thanks to F295 Studio! Lots of testing to make a digital negative dense enough for the process, but I think I'm getting closer. This one, the exposure got a away from me but in good light, it shows really well. I normally wouldn't print that dark but I'm liking it a lot the more I look at it. This is from my favorite spot to shoot on Gandy Blvd. on the St. Pete side ... a place we used to call "The Rocks." More testing, more to come ... soon, very soon.
