Light & Dark

Continuing my return to monochrome photography, I revisited a number of slide/transparency scans. All the images in this post were originally created with a medium format camera (6 x 4.5 cm) with Fuji Velvia film, scanned with an Epsom 850 scanner. They were then processed to monochrome at the first stage using Lightroom with final adjustments and adding a frame with Photoshop.

Last week I spent my first afternoon in over 2 decades in a traditional darkroom at The Photo Parlour in Nottingham creating prints from black and white negatives. It proved an invaluable experience. I was surprised at what I could remember, and what I need to both learn and improve upon. Not just in the printing phase but from the moment of creating the image in my mind before I press the shutter release.

Moving between digital and analogue processing of monochrome images is, for me, a useful way to ‘see’ in monochrome. The following images are scans from transparencies. Expect to see scans of final prints created using the traditional darkroom experience.
