The People Photo Series: Day 3

This was actaully a test shot when I was experimenting with a new film before a wedding which I was shooting two summers ago. I was very pleased with the way it turned out considering there was essentially no prep. It was taken on Ilford B&W film and the actual print looks far nicer since it was printed on true silver-based black and white paper with amazing dynamic range. Sadly it didnt' transfer over quite as well to digital when it was scanned but I still think it's a nice picture :)

NICELY DONE BUT MAYBE A LITTLE BIT OF ERASER TOOL OR BURN TOOL ON THE WHITE TOP
Iain Myrans: Hum, yea, that's probably a good point. I didn't put to much work into the scan because I'd always intended it as a dark room print kind of shot and on the print you don't notice as much but you're absoloutely right here. Thanks for the tip.

Good shot for..testing, i would have used differenet frame and shutter settings.

love B/W anyway and i find it ineresting shot.
Iain Myrans: Ya, I always liked this one. The original film version looked far nicer than the scan -- kodak makes some lovely b&w films and papers! Oh those were the days -- havn't used film in a long time now. I remember this day though, she hates her photo being taken but was sweet enough to let me test out the film. smile

What a lovely photo. Black and white papers are nicer with real silver based films. I'm sure the original is really nice. Beautiful model helps though as it always does!
