Homage to Fox Talbot: Diptych

Working notes and screen prints

Sat, January 03, 2015

Start images are iPhone captures using Hipstamatic app, John S lens and D-Type Plate film. I download and keyword them to Lightroom’s Library module, but all my editing is done with Photoshop and additional plug-ins. There’s a lot of tweaking until I’m ready to print a “flipped” final to DAAS transfer film. Each positive and negative was printed separately 12 inches x 12 inches, then taped together for the transfer to limestone paper. After a couple of days, I washed the image with cold water. The blackest deposits of ink rinsed down the drain, leaving behind an eerie metallic residue. The screen shots of my working files offer additional information.
