I find that I often process my b/w photos with a slightly purple cast. It’s not really a conscious thing, but perhaps because the red channel has the capacity to bring out detail hidden in a plain black and white photo, and the fact that my lo-fi shooting often lacks detail might both be clues as to why this occurs.
I’m in a group show at this wonderful Tribeca (not Soho!) NYC Gallery until the end of the month. Please stop by if you’re in town.
More photos, including my own invented contraption to use with the camera to give the photos a little extra dreaminess on the sMacVision Facebook page . You will also find photos from my first test roll of film in this camera. More to come.
The tasks seem endless. I feel I will never be caught up with scanning my drawings, Polaroids, and film negatives. It’s a full time job plus overtime and double shifts!
The never ending task of scanning and resizing my stacks of Polaroids keeps me busy. Some are perfect as is, others need moderate tweaking (increase the contrast slightly, remove too-strong color casts in some cases, de-dust, de-dust, de-dust!) But then others need a full overhaul. For fun, I have taken some recent polaroids and spent hours giving them the Andy-Warhol treatment.
