Yet another darkroom special – I’m totally rocking my archives pretty hard lately, dudes and dudettes. I do kinda’ like this one. Probably because it took me so long to print this beast (although with Photoshop this might be about a ten minute job – at the most).
Mid-tones? We don’t need no stinkin’ mid-tones. But it’s ‘for on purpose though’. Really. I tend to print many photos super-contrasty. It’s so emotive… so dark and brooding! I think my almost exclusive use of the No. 5 split printing filter makes me seem super artsy-like… don’t you?!
About this image: Ilford 35mm film (who would’ve guessed, eh?) top image enlarged, film strips contact printed.
