Imagemaking outside the (camera)box
Yes, I’m cheating a bit now…. My blog is about film photography, and this post has nothing at all to do with film or for that matter, not camera either.
But I got so inspired when I found out about this kind of image making on Flickr a while ago, and just had to try it myself.
But to explain shortly: I put my small daffodils on a photographic paper from my darkroom, put it all in a contact sheet frame and out into the sun for several hours. Then I scanned the paper, then I fixed it all for a minute or so, rinsed it carefully to get rid of ALL fixer. Then I toned the image in a bath with diluted goldtoner. It dried overnight, and then I scanned it again.
I’m not sure about the gold toner, or the dilution of it, but I guess it is all about trial and error…. 😉
I have done this a couple of times now, but this is the first result I like myself. And I can’t wait until the snow is gone, and it is starting to grow out in the nature again…..
I hope you will enjoy! 🙂
