1920’s Themed Photo Session

A classmate and I together did a 1920’s themed photo session. This was the first time I had done anything like this (models, make-up, etc). It was a bit scary at first but turned out really well and was really fun. So far I’ve only retouched one image which is my favourite. Here it is! image

Ink in Water!

And for my last post of the day is ink in water. I tried this a few years ago on 35mm B&W film (one of the first few posts on here). Needless to say it didn’t work out because you can only enlarge 35mm so much before it gets really grainy. I also had to increase the contrast a lot during printing. But since I recently bought a 60mm macro lens I decided to try again. This time I used coloured calligraphy ink instead of black india ink. They react the same in water so it all worked out fine. I really loved the result but have many, many, many more images that did not turn out. I used an aperture of 2.8 so I had a very small depth of field to work with and had to change the focus point while releasing the shutter so I could catch the quickly falling ink. I love them though and that’s all that really matters.
