Lately I’m really into dishonesty attempting to replicate certain photographic processes digitally (since I lack the materials/knowledge to produce the ‘real things’). Just getting my lie on.

More of the same today! I took this photo of my Grandfather (who was a really good dude) after I got my digital SLR. I wasn’t happy with the results,  although for some reason I think the image works better faked edited this way (the contemporary shirt is a bit of a bummer, though).

More Fake Collodion

Me: “Jeff Goldblum?!”

Annabelle: “I wouldn’t say he’s classically handsome, but he is attractive.”

Me: “I would not have guessed that. In a million years.”

Annabelle: “If he’s funny that makes him more attractive.”

Me: “But not Adam Sandler?”

Annabelle: “No.”

*pause*

Annabelle: “Like Jack Black, or…”

Me: “Jack Black?!” (glancing in mirror) “Oh *explicative*.”

The  point of this ridiculous story (I think) is my wife can be ‘aesthetically challenged’. At times. Which I appreciate.

Anna No. 1

You’ve likely noticed I’m a big fan of attempting to recreate processes I completely lack the knowledge/materials to explore. So, its probably no surprise I’ve recently been faking old wet plate collodion photographs (to the best of my ability, anyway).

Hmmm… am I still dishonest if I admit to being so? Will a fallen tree make any noise if the chicken came before the forest? Perhaps we’ll never know.

Isn’t Anna lovely, BTW?!
