Photoplay

I recently did a photo shoot at a church and I liked this shot of a large marble sculpture of Jesus of Nazareth so much that I decided to play with it. It's original is a black and white printed on 8x10 pearl paper. I decided to have a little darkroom fun and 'solarized' it... that is, dabbled in developer, water and high contrast... and the outcome was such that I wanted to share it. It was so much fun to make!

I hope you like it as much as I do!

Great photo! I haven't dabbled in a dark room for years, although I'm still an avid photographer -- just more digital these days.

Thanks for coming when you have.

I wish I had a clue how to dabble like that. Very interesting effect.

Christina,

Everyone is digital (even me)... but oh the fun that can be had when one plays in a dark room!


Pearl,

Thanks!
Happy blog birthday!


Molly,

I *LOVED* learning how to do it. Now I have to buy stock in the Ilford photo paper company because I'll be playing a LOT.

Kat,

Thank you! The statue is very beautifully done too, I so enjoyed shooting photos of it.

Vanilla,

YAY! I love it too.
Glad you like it; I always enjoy yours very much.
