Darkroom Printing.

With the weather being as miserable as it wants, I have spent the last few days in the darkroom printing many different images. My main focus is on textural detail in which I try to highlight key areas that are partially interesting.

In the image here is of an old greenhouse that looks burnt from fire, and only the rafters remain. Last semester I would have shot this image with the entire foreground and background in focus but this semester I am playing with the F stops on the camera and seeing how they can change the way an image looks. This particular photograph was shot on Fomapan 100 film at F/11 with a shutter of 1/4 seconds. It was quite an overcast day, hence the low shutter speed.

Silver Print on Matt

I really love the detail that it produces and also the effect that having a smaller aperture produces. This is 1 of 3 images that I printed in the last two days, and making sure the print is perfect is very important to me. For me, there must a complete contrast between all the greys, also bright whites and deep blacks in order for the print to not look flat and dull. I feel that this image has this depth and quality that I am looking for and I am very pleased with the outcome.
