Salad Dressing for My Pictures

2011-04-07 16

The dressing is a mixture of spices and other condiments to enhance or add flavour to a product such as my roll of Fuji Superia 100 ASA.

For those who know me, perhaps you already heard about my obsession with the experiments and with adding other products to my pictures, salt water, bleach and soap have had the pleasure of tasting my reels.
This time it was vinegar turn. In previous rolls I had already tried to spot a movie with drops of vinegar, but in those cases the effect was negligible. Then I decided to go a little further and after spending a weekend in the Delta del Llobregat taking pictures of the planes and trees, I wanted to let the imagination run.

Steps to follow:
1. When I was rewinding the spool I opened the lid of the Lomo LC-A + a few times, so they were spots of light.
2. When I finished to rewind it, I put the reel in vinegar for 1 day.
3. The next day I left the reel to dry a bit and after a few hours I went to my darkroom and I followed the usual process.
4. This time I decided not to clean the reel, so I just wiped it, I broke it to make it without the canister (because there was dirty vinegar) and might get wet again.
5. I put the spool rolled into a small black box with a note warning that could not be opened and then brought it to the photolab.

The dressing gave a special taste to the my film!

    A flash here, a flicker there. An afterimage is an optical illusion and reoccurring phenomenon resulting from a brief exposure to a bright light source, such as a camera flash. What's even more fascinating than experiencing this illusion is discovering that your camera is able to mimic its effect!

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ice Skating (A Tribute to Monte Fresco)

    This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.
