BackTo Black & White

My friend, Vin Catania, makes a photo of me, while I make a photo of him…

Somewhere along the way… the thought occurred to me that EVERYONE has a digital camera… and that the Signal To Noise Ratio is trending downward… so I figured that I would do what I love doing, and probably do best, which is to make black and white pictures, with “monochromatic analog capture media”, and scan the negatives.

It’s a LOT of work, but the Craft Aspect makes it worth it.

Some of these are made with my Mamiya 645 cameras, and some with one of those expensive German rangefinder cameras. All were made on actual, real FILM, developed in actual, real Kodak HC-110 Developer, and scanned on my awesome Epson 4870 scanner.
