Photography

In a previous life

To help kick off the new forum, I thought it might be fun to show a photograph I made when I was a NYC commercial photographer.

The photo was made for my portfolio, circa 1988.

As you can imagine, this was in the days before digital photography. The photograph took about a week to produce (the camera work, followed by very detailed darkroom work)

I was one of very few photographers who ran an E6 line, processing the 8x10" Ektachromes in my darkroom so I could have complete control of the results.

The photo-composition technique involved 10 pin registered overlays, and about 30 steps in complete darkness to combine the images and the glows.

I could do this now in a few minutes in Photoshop!

We've come a long way!
