|Museum of Natural History - Horace and O looking into an underwater display, reflections on their faces.|
A few months ago, Horace started to learn about developing and printing from film and really fell in love with the process. He took a darkroom class for a few months and solidified his understanding of how it all works and even built his own darkroom in a shed in our backyard. I never really had an interest in learning all this (I tend to just send my film to a lab or cvs to get it developed, or have Horace do it for me:), but he finally persuaded me this past weekend. We spent an evening in the darkroom developing a few rolls of black and white 35 mm film, fitting negatives in the enlarger, printing onto photo paper, and passing the paper through different chemicals until it was all ready. We did this over and over again for this photo because of how many facets this one in particular has. The left side of the photo took a specific type of filter on the enlarger than the right side and a different time under the light, so it took a little bit of work to get it where I wanted it. Horace is a great teacher and really walked me through the process until I understood it. I'm really happy with how this one turned out and I am excited to work on another print soon.
