Here’s the third of the Lincoln series. This one is my favorite, but I am not exactly known for my taste in my own photography. I tried more “artistic” crops, but this is the one I like best.
I have some cross-processed film waiting to be scanned. It’s Fuji 400 color film processed in my Clayton black and white chemistry. I’m hoping for some interesting lo-fi effects, but only time will tell. Unfortunately, my usual source for inexpensive, quick, and low-quality scanning has changed their pricing structure, and now I’m priced out of the game. I’m looking for another source, but until then, they’ll remain in photo-limbo, suspended in my workflow. One of these days.

D.C. III. Something about the focus and depth of field of this one is very appealing to me. Is it a little bit funny to you? It is to me.
It never ceases to amaze me how much I can learn from looking at my images after I develop them. Looking at this picture, I can count four things that I will do differently next time in less than five seconds. For me, film forces this kind of reflection, while digital doesn’t seem to. Perhaps it’s the removal from the act of shooting (this was shot in July and developed this weekend), or perhaps it’s the economy that a limited number of frames forces. In any case, I am certainly learning.
Kodak Tri-X 400, Clayton F76+, awesome drugstore commercial negative scan (one of these days. . .).
