A little bit of good news. My portrait of Isabel (a post from a couple of weeks ago - scroll down) has been selected to be part of the Red Wall Gallery’s A+ Exhibition in Ottawa, Canada. Happy happy happy! Now, I just need to get out there to find more models to continue my practice.
Meanwhile, back in Saskatchewan I took my 4x5 into the middle of a field to shoot an old grain elevator. I now know I need to practice using the camera movements as I still did some straightening in photoshop. I wanted to make a ghostly image; a reminder of how these historic buildings are disappearing from our Canadian landscape. I believe the bleached negative provided the feeling though I bumped up the contrast in photoshop. Not sure if I should have or not. Unfortunately, I don’t have a 4x5 enlarger to try to make a silver gelatin print.
