A short how I do it film this weekend.
I am, at heart, a monochrome photographer. It is how I learnt the game with a home made enlarger in a spare room. It is still often how I visualise an image. Nowadays of course, with digital cameras we make our images in RGB and the Mac has become our darkroom. Though I still own, and use a clutch of film cameras, digital is my workhorse.
So I thought, a “How Si works” film would be fun to do.
The original photo was taken in Northumberland some years ago on an Olympus E3, with a 105mm lens. As usual, it was shot raw. I’ve processed it with my preferred editor, the photographer focused Capture One Pro. I would still much rather have used a Leica or Hasselblad, HP5 and a DeVere504 with Forte Polywarmtone though. Bach, Beethoven or Abba on the CD player too.
Oh, for the record. That building storm was a brute, powerful enough to batter the boats moored in Seahouses harbour.
