Bluebells

Lumen prints are created by placing objects, particularly plants and flowers, on photographic paper and exposing to the sun. UV light actually "develops" the image and you can then scan for maximum colors, or fix like I do to create a permanent print.

    What an exquisite set of lumen prints. Funny how they also came in my notifications. I often ask myself why I always hit Levels to increase the contrast. It must be in my personality because the understatement of these lumen prints have all the charm of an old school flower press. Congrats and nice to see the colour prints as well.

    Thanks so much @lomodesbro. I do appreciate the input. I admit that my idea of post production is pulling the cork from a nice bottle of red while the scanner is doing its job!
