digital negatives

I spent the better part of this morning scanning some negatives and processing the images. Below are a few examples, all were taken within the last month either in the studio or on an adventure with thevisualCollective.

It could be argued that digitizing a black and white negative is kind of bastardizing the medium, and while this may be true on some level, I don’t believe it. I think it is more of a synergy between two mediums that create a new one. Personally, I think digitized negatives are very cool.

In my film days I really only dealt with natural light, so shooting in the studio with flash was a fun learning experience and something I plan on doing more of in the future.

Hope you enjoyed the negatives i processed this morning, more to come in the future.
