Things are redeveloping

Last night I tried a new process: lith redevelopment. I took some prints that I had done using standard developer, bleached them back, and redeveloped them in the lith. I like the softer brown tones I get compared to the strong yellow with regular lith.

Release Remote Control

She’s lost control

I don’t think of myself as a photographer. My mental image of a photographer is a tightly wound old dude. Like Ansel Adams approaching the craft like an engineer: testing films, chemicals, lenses, and shutters. It just doesn’t seem like a place for me.

What can I gain by giving up control? What do I stand to lose? Where is the line?

Those trucks are tamping down the chaos

 

Sometimes my process is out of control.

All the way to Tacoma

Spent part of this week outside of Phoenix on an business trip. As usual, I spent most of my time in the hotel, but I did sneak out one evening for some shots of the golf course with my Diana and a roll of Ilford Fp4.
