My own private summer hit…It’s like I’m sixteen again…listening to the same song over and over and over…but back in those days it was the Bad Brains ‘Rock For Light’ album…man, we wore that tape out, big time! Have a great day everyone! Sincerely-Django

another toning experiment…i have no idea how i got this tiger stripe camo going but it looks quite nice, especially as in the original print it comes in all colors of the rainbow…the vignette or frame is exposed directly on to the negative

accidently totally overexposed paper negative and some digital manipulation…haha…only a tiny bit though…now I’m asking myself if I could get a similar effect using gold toner…guess I’ll have to try sometime…edit…of course it wouldn’t work, because the toner only tones the black (silver) parts of the picture…one would have to make a contact of the negative (to get a positive), then make another negativ out of the resulting positive. tone this negative and make a second exposure to activate the leftover silver in all the parts that are still white in the negative and all this before fixing…who’s first to give it a shot? Edit…since the negative is so dense you would have to use a long exposure time…and the longer the exposure, at least in my experience, the more visible is the structure of the paper in the whites…totally different feel to the image, probably a lot worse. :D
