Beautiful. If I didnt know better, I’d say that you were shooting infrared film. :)
Yep – if I was actually shooting with film that is…..The means justifies the end? The end justify the means? Does it matter how you get from point A to point B?
Do you think that matters? Digital photography where bits replace the cellulose and chemical baths…. I like the parallel to when I was actually working with negatives – burning and dodging….timing it to get just the right qualities… What is it after all if not a series of choices and decisions about the image…
It would be fun to learn how the old-timer’s did it on glass plates wouldn’t it.
For me it’s like the Berger quote – except for me its always already about the interpretation of a subject to convey a certain perception however personal that may be…..
“Unlike any other visual image, a photograph is not a rendering, an imitation or an interpretation of its subject, but actually a trace of it. No painting or drawing, however naturalist, belongs to its subject in the way that a photograph does.”
The digital darkroom is a condition of modern photography that is very interesting to think about.
