Friday Photography


Caged In - I have a particular fondness for this photograph because it was a photograph I took when I was still in college, it was a photograph I took with my film camera, one that I processed myself in the dark room. Now all m photographs are taken with a DSLR and I haven't set foot in a dark room in eight years! This is a cross processed photograph of a stores steel shutters. Cross processing is the procedure of deliberately processing photographic film in a chemical solution intended for a different type of film which results in increased contrast and stronger colors. This photograph was taken in Karachi, Pakistan.

The photograph is available for purchase here

  2. I remember using dark rooms in high school for photography. I had a love hate relationship with them. They were perfect for gossiping in with friends and passing time, it was also amazing watching an image form after placing paper into the chemical bath. It was also too time consuming for my impatient self lol.

  4. Last spring I took a class on old school dark room photography so I fully appreciate the talent it took to capture this image. Well done!

  5. Beautiful shot! I love the colors. Isn't it amazing how far things have come in the realm of photography (anything tech really). Do you prefer the digital work or the manual processing?

    1. Thank you.. Digital. It is faster and easier and less wasteful. I take a few hundred pictures when I travel and shot.. Developing all those shots in the darkroom to find the handful of photographs I actually like.. Would take.. I can't even do the math!

  6. Cool shot! And thanks for telling a bit about the proces. In school we dabbled a bit in processing, but we had a very strict teacher, so there was no room for experimenting. I would have loved trying things out and seeing where those adventures would have taken me. Sometimes doing things not the way they're supposed to be can give really cool results!

    1. Thanks! While I hated our teacher she was open to experimentation.. In fact it was she who showed us how to do it.

  8. Beautiful photo! Sometimes the film cameras seem to capture just the perfect image. And there's something about developing in a dark room that really seems fun! I haven't done it before, but I've always wanted to. My daughter is in a photog class right now, and she did it. =0)
