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.
Above is Kyra at the Las Vegas campground near Lake Mead on the recent visualCollective trip to Death Valley, Calif.
Matt and Ashley standing on the Bad Water Salt Flats before our shoot there. BTW, although it may seem like a good/fun idea, don’t lick the salt flat. I did and couldn’t get the taste out of my system for several hours.
Hope you enjoyed the negatives i processed this morning, more to come in the future.
