Craoni, also know as Tony, is a friend that I know from Flickr. I "met" him when he saw one of the film swap photos I did with Brendan. He was kind of blown away by the results and wanted to try it himself so I sent some film his way. I used Portra 800 and I really love the results of this film. I kind of feel bad that I "wasted" a roll of this film on a film swap because it is expensive and so wonderful. But it had been sitting in my closet for awhile and I felt like I needed to use it.
I am very happy with how these turned out! They have a very dreamy quality to them.

When I visited Paris in September I decided to bring four rolls of Kodak Tri-x with me - one roll for each day. I am not sure what made me decide to bring black and white film of all things, but I am really glad I did. I knew I was going to take my darkroom class eventually and in the back of my mind I decided that I wanted to develop this film myself. So I stuck it my desk drawer until this past March. It was a delight to develop this film after having visited several months ago. It was fun to relive the memories of being there! I've also been printing many of the prints which has also been fun. The last time I was in the darkroom the other person in there was also printing something from when he visited Paris. It was really cool to compare stories.

Last night in my darkroom class we learned some image manipulation techniques. Weirdly and unexpectedly my teacher mentioned negative stacking. I wasn't planning on doing this yesterday in the darkroom but I had to give it a shot, since she mentioned it. I picked out a couple of photos from the negatives I had just developed and sandwiched them on the light-box. As soon as I saw the baseball and the alley I knew I had to try it.
I love it! I want to do more. I want to get all cheesy and over the top with it. It would be hilarious if I could take a photo of the murderous, bird-killing neighbor cat and substitute it for the baseball.
This could get scary.
My friend, Miss Gingersnaps, suggested on Twitter that I might be interested in trying this today. She must know me very well because I, indeed, am very interested. So I tried it! And this is what I came up with. I didn't put much thought into it. The scanner wanted the image to be very blue so I had to do some tweaking both in the scanner software and Lightroom. I didn't know what I was doing. But there you go. Kind of fun. Maybe I will try it again. It would actually be something fun to try in an actual darkroom.
