Lumen Portrait II..

lumenlstudio002nikcweb

I have realized that the funkiness of the lumen process allows me to use some of my more funky images and so I am having a good converting them to lumen prints.  A different paper this time!

[Digital neg contact printed onto 5×7 ILFORD Multigrade IV, RC Delux, Satine – about 4 minutes of full sun exposure.]

Jeanine [oystergirl] who runs an/the oysterhouse in Cedar Key.

The negative for this was quite thin and probably more suited to a Cyanotype print. To me, the versatility of the digital negative is astounding and a wonderful addition to my photography.

[5×7 Arista.Edu, Variable Contrast RC, Semi Matte, about 8 minutes of shade/daylight exposure.]

The Photographer…

0813wowwebpp2Working on updating my web site, I ran across this photo of my friend Mary Beth which was taken in her Tallahassee studio about seven years ago. I had never processed it before, and am quite happy with this black and white version. She is a fantastic professional photographer and you can see her work on her website.

Strictly a concept….

splashI feel the need for developing a new, cleaner website. Here is my ‘shorthand’ three page concept. My thought is that I want the site to be clean, and with minimal content, just a few images from several portfolios. That kind of thing. If you click on the above it will take you to the site, and if you then click on that page it will take you to the contents page with, so far, only one concept portfolio listed. The portfolio is a ‘slideshow’ that you need to scroll by swiping each image. It is not explained anywhere. My assumption is that viewers are savvy enough now to figure that out. -oh, and I am only using my first and middle name  for the site.

I would love your feedback – many thanks!index

Straight Scan…

mb002webCleaning up, I ran across this print of MB which was done a couple of decades or so ago. It is about 7×11 inches printed on warmtone Agfa fiber paper. Aside from the fact that I really like the portrait, what is amazing to me is that it was made with my 35mm SLR using T-Max 3200. By the way, MB is now a wonderfully successful photographer – I am so proud of her!
