Darkroom Tricks


Darkroom Tricks

I had my last class (until fall) at the Art League darkroom last night. I didn’t want to start any major new projects, so I decided to have some experimental fun with some older negatives. It was a small class, so I took over two enlargers and used one to “flash” my print with one second of light after about 30 seconds in the developer – a technique known as solarization, or the Sabattier Effect.

Summer is going to be busy, but I am going to try to make time for photography – extra challenging with no class or Artomatic deadlines hanging over my head.
