We were out photographing again on Thursday. Perfect weather, although a little too hot for this time of the year. I shot my second roll of infrared which has now been developed. From the looks of the negatives, there are some good and some not so good, but that’s all part of the learning process.
Marks shot his Mamiya C330 and decided to try a different pyro staining type film developer. The negatives look great, albeit a little strange to our eyes. We were expecting to see that though as it has been well documented what to expect with the pyro staining developers. We will know more when we start working on the prints so stay tuned.
I still have some that Marks took on our trip to Bulow’s Hidden Lake along Pumphouse Road, so here goes.
This crown of the young pine tree shows the amazing contrast and detail that the Moersch Tanol developer brought out in the negative.
Marks took this with his Mamiya C330 using Ilford HP5 film @ 200. Film developer is Moersch Tanol and the paper developer used is Moersch ECO 4812. This was scanned from the silver gelatin print.
All technical information can be found on his Flickr site:-
Great detail on this dying (dead) palm tree encrusted with Turkey Tail Fungi. This was also scanned from the silver gelatin print.
Here’s the link to this one on Flickr for technical details and timing of chemicals:-
Thanks for visiting and viewing.
We would love to hear from you so leave us a comment.
Enjoy the weekend.
