Description this is a long exposed paper negative ( hand held for 10-20 seconds! ) of a washcloth in the morning light. its the little things that we usually overlook, the little things that we usually forget. the morning light where i live comes in the windows and just looks so nice. i took this photograph so i wouldn't forget.the techie stuff ... this is from a graflex 3a post card camera. i hand roll spools of photo paper and use paper instead of film. it has a weird 'look' because it is old-school, and is not a modern panchromatic emulsion. the paper is very-slow so it has to be exposed for a long time. like most of my photography, i developed the paper in coffee based developer. feel free to ask me about the developer i can provide you with info or beans.
John Nanian, Warwick, RI Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement thanks for visiting my imagekind gallery. i am a freelance photographer, but when I am not on assignment i photograph the world around me. sometimes i travel distances, but most of the time i am photographing local things. i am not far from the coast, im not far from providence and i can always find something nearby to photograph. i sometimes make photographic emulsion from scratch, sometimes i use storebought paper and film, sometimes i make photographs using the sun. i use a digital camera too, and from time to time i will make a emulsion based photograph using a digital file. i also make film and paper developer our of coffee. most of the coffee developer i use is from sumatra coffee beans i roast myself. i helped write the caffenol-cookbook, and i was featured in an interview on emulsive.com. i experiment a lot as you might have guessed. thanks again for the visit.
