Up the escalator at Porter Square subway station in April 2003. Scanned from the negative with burn/dodge and toning in Photoshop.
Bringing this one up from the archives as it didn’t get looked at much before. This was taken with an Olympus Stylus Epic point-and-shoot on Ilford Delta 100, which scans wonderfully.
I’ve been having a lot of fun with Photoshop lately, without really understanding how it works. Levels and Curves are fine, but the manipulation of layers and channels leaves me mystified. I was going to get “Adobe Photoshop for Photographers” to try to learn something. Anyone have better book suggestions?
The tone here is the result of a happy Photoshop accident in the course of turning a colour-balanced scan to black-and-white.
Handheld, Ilford FP4 Plus at box speed, developed in Diafine. The pears were delicious.
From-the-hip with my Yashica GSN.
It took some work in Photoshop to get the image on the film to resemble what I had in my mind’s eye when I took the picture.
Our writer friend Mike gets to go to all sorts of interesting events.
Shot from a moving streetcar on a gray and rainy day in December on slow Efke KB25 film.
As December starts, I thought it was time to brighten things up with some colour for a change. I didn’t use a polarizer or adjust the colours at all here. The ocean in Curacao really was that shade of blue. Note added April 2007: this was one of the first photos I posted on Photosensitive!
