The Commute

I really wish I could take credit for these fun, imaginative photos. Currently I can only take credit for the darkroom creativity. But my new Nikon D80 is on its way in the mail, then stay tuned for creations I can call my own...

Cross Processing

Thank you to Erica for a great image. She had the idea for the super-exposure, too.

I really wish I lived in darkroom days. Okay, maybe not really (I hate chemicals on my hands), but here is a great digital example of Cross Processing, formerly done by deliberately processing film in the wrong chemical solution for a different color exposure. Some movies are done this way (Million Dollar Baby, for one.)

One more: I don't quite know how to describe the difference between the images. I love the look of a vignetted lens (the darkened circle around the edges) but I realize I am starting to overuse it. Not every picture has to be dark at the edge like these.
