Nikon F-1971 1999 at Mansfield Hollow Dam. Jump forward a couple years and I brought this image in to the class I was teaching at New London Adult Ed. It was one of the images I used to lead the discussion on contrast. Everyone wanted to know how I did it? How long did it take? Few asked about post process but it was 2001 so my class was filled mostly with film people. My answer was 1/125 second, most chuckled and said really? I explained that I knew where the light was time of day and went there found my spot and shot 1 or 2 images this one printed easily in the darkroom probably took less time than scanning and adjusting the scan to meet the quality of the print. My PS Elements 10 wanted a color profile for everything is color and many of the functions in post process don’t work in gray scale [B+W]. Black and White prints are not about color they are an emotional visual poetry. No artificial emotion in my PS. and no edge like film. enjoy pjc
