Two images made within an hour show vastly different light. This image of Surf, Rabbit Hill, Yallingup, was published in 1992 and became a hugely successful postcard. It was made with a short zoom lens but still required some cropping in the final drum scan for colour separations (before photoshop!).
This basic video shows how to load 4x5 sheet film into a double dark film holder. All steps need to be made in total darkness for both black and white or colour film.
Conto Beach at sunset. Overhanging limestone cliffs dominate the beach and create a dramatic back drop to this part of the Cape to Cape Track. Framed 15x 30in print available.
Wildflowers Back Beach Denmark, a stunning cliff-top display of coral vine on a south coast beach, popular with locals surfers.
Early morning photography provides many opportunities. It was the pay off for leaving my warm sleeping bag, hiking with my head lamp along a track leading through karri forest, until I came to my river location.
Tracks, Donnelly River, represents on one hand the emptiness of the coast. Yet on the other hand there is clear evidence of animal activity, even if it’s not always observed.
Bull Creek tree ferns is an image I am yet to print. It was made in 1988 on a friend’s property at Bull Creek, in the Cradle Mountain Valley, Tasmania. We had spent a wet day hiking through myrtle forest and tree ferns on the slopes above Lake Cethana locating the old survey pegs.
Dissociation photographic exhibition is an ongoing project documenting landscape elements within the Canning River environment. The exhibited photographs are hand printed by the author in his traditional wet darkroom, from medium and large format black and white film negatives.
I have listed four common photographic print types using silver and chemistry as their basis. These include traditional silver gelatin fibre based prints, Polaroid prints, Type C colour prints and Cibachrome or Ilfochrome prints.
Split grade printing is my preferred technique for printing from a high contrast image with the goal of making a full tonal range silver gelatin fibre based print.
