Self Developed Photos :)


The following are my very first self made photos! They may be not awesome but I’m truly happy about the result.

I did all the step to get them, from shooting the photos, to develop the negative, contacts print, contrast grade, to finally the copy!

Working in the darkroom is such an extraordinary experience! it is actually like magic itself!

Though the negative seems to have some kind of dust, I like how it is presented in the photo, as it looks like there is the aura of the Rose.

I like this Graffiti as Mehr Licht, means More Light in German!

    Love the rose too :) Great results!
    Was it difficult? Where did you get the material and where did you learn the steps?
    Any tips useful :)

    I love that feeling when you do something from start to finish all with your own skills and hands. I LOVE working in the darkroom! Great work!

    The one with the rose is the best, but I like the graffiti too. I really like the purplish tint to them.
