Another Kallitype of an image from Bulow State Park.
Bulow State Park has an enormous variety of very old trees, Oaks, Hickory Nut and Maple. I took this image with a Mamiya 645 Medium Format camera with Ilford FP 4 film. The negative was processed in my darkroom.. For this Kallitype I needed an 8×10 negative. So I scanned the negative and converted it to a digital 8×10 negative. Then contact printing this onto sensitized watercolor paper by UV light. The processing is basically the same as a silver gelatin print just different chemicals. The Kallitype process is an antique process patented in the late 1800’s.

Thanks very much for visiting and viewing. Comments are greatly appreciated.
Husband and wife photographers specializing in Florida nature and places of interest. We enjoy trekking into the wilds of Florida to photograph areas as the settlers would have seen it. Our goal is to show you parts of Florida that the average person doesn't see both in color and in black and white. Still life images are now becoming a big part of our process.
We have transitioned from film and wet darkroom to exclusively digital.
We still do Alternative process in our darkroom- Kallitype , Van Dyke Brown and Salt Printing on a small scale.
