This week’s digital archive is a scan from an old strip of Ilford HP5 Plus black & white film. It was part of a study for course work involving a flash, and I remember being happy with how it came out. This also was when I had the opportunity to manually develop and process in a darkroom. I admit, I miss the smell of those chemicals, and shared sense of dread and excitement as I wondered whether or not an image came out the way I hoped it would.
I took the image at the Patterson Monument in Dayton Ohio at night, using a flash to illuminate the back of one of the individuals depicted in the mural.
I really do enjoy working in digital, but some days… well, it’d be fun to be surprised again by an image as it slowly appeared through the developer.
Have a great weekend –
