This one fought me. The initial image was shot on 8×10 but it did not work. I performed a rather extreme crop by chopping the negative down to 5×7. It’s the only to crop when you contact print. And it is unforgiving.
I am a traditionalist. Large format film shooter and darkroom printer. Any and all manipulations are done either in camera or in the dark. I have nothing against digital, I think it is remarkable technology; I just like to get my hands wet. Living in my delicate wreck of a house in Baltimore, Maryland in which I do all my work.
