I need your help.
Ove rthe las tanount oftime I haveb een Snapp inup andpos tingh ere. The images are 'straight' in that they either come from a print or a neg without too much messing about with on the pooter to make them them look as bad as they do. I like them that way in the main. I may 'mess wif them' a bit in the darkroom using tissue paper or whatever comes to hand - but it is organic as they [I] say. However, and here's the rub, I rather like images that have a painterly look. And I like some images that have been messed wif digitally. You know the sort of thing - like here. And no, I have no idea how I did it to be honest.
The question is; should I do that more? I might add as an addendum here that I will take little notice of what you say but I really value your comments all the same. Possibly.
Anyway, back to sort sort of reality;
Mr Unknown has posted a fine albeit pixeled up image on his site. Yes, go and have a look then come back. Please.
I tried holding a piece of old paper in front of this neg but I couldn't see through it so here's the thing 'straight' as it were. Some castle thing in DurHam, England. Used the Kodak Cresta for this shot. Now, don't you all rush out and buy up stocks of this little gem, the idea is mine, all mine. Apart from all the other people who thought of using one. Obviously.
