This image was made in 2012 to replace an older version I had decided to retire. The retired image was made in 1997. It first appeared as a postcard and published tens of thousands of times. It has also appeared in magazines and books.
The importance of establishing a standard exposure time for making and assessing your first contact prints.
Overdeveloped negatives, we all have them, but how do you print from them?

Alas, Polaroid Type 55 positive negative film is no longer made. It was rated around 50 ISO on the box which, in my eagerness, is what I exposed the image above at. Great for a well exposed print, but possibly a mistake for a negative if you want to print from it.
Printed this morning in my darkroom, I made this image last weekend just after some recent rain. It was rather impromptu in one sense. I had been out walking the dog and noticed the late afternoon light at the weir. When I returned home I grabbed by 2 1/4 square camera and went back to the river in the fading winter light.
I am delighted to have several images and a short essay published in this month’s Looking Glass Magazine. That two of those images were made literally down the street from where I live in suburban Perth is even more satisfying!
I made this popular Bluff Knoll image on Velvia 35mm film. First published in my Stirling Range postcard series and later as a poster in 1995. Back in the day, it was a large drum scan and film separations from 35mm. The poster is 70x48cm and came up very well.
