Ah dear reader you are probably thinking...' Haven't you got enough on your plate, what with the slip sliding, time lapsing video doofering about...old man...' ?? Heck no, clock change this weekend means the darkroom (downstairs loo) becomes far more usable and with the leaves a falling project Pinhole will be swept into action...Pinhole...yes the 10 x 8 stuff, Harman Titan Ilford DPP that I hornswoggled from any site that had it and now sits boxed and cool, ready for me to be standing around in bare branched woodland for possibly hours and hours...or at least until the sun sets by 4 ish... try finding some...like gold dust, DP Paper that is...
Digital Negatives, keen eyed visitors will probably have noticed that I really don't post anything to photo sharing sites anymore...let's not get into the likey sharey please love me thingy again...but most of my image making is geared towards Image lIbrary work, Video stuff has been accepted so the hundreds of clips polished and primed will be heading off to their collective new existence v.v. soon...so Digital Negatives...this time I've started so I'll finish...I'm now more interested in prints for what can best be described as 'Personal Work' and for printing that will be Cyanotypes, most likely toned with Tannic acid. Now this is where the Digital Negatives come in...as you can see from the image above I have set up a template using guides and then created a stack using groups which can be toggled on and off...the images prior to printing on Permajet Digital Transfer film will be inverted and also coloured orange...I know colour negs onto a single tone image....it's all about the UV and as Cyanotypes mainly react to light in the UV spectrum what better way to boost the negative than hop onto the opposite side of the colourwheel to give the negative some density....you'll be the first ones to see...oh and they will be on sale exclusively through a rather upmarket gallery...time to crack on...
What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
