When I use to develop my own film and prints, I always enjoyed trying to find a different way to process. I always believe that there is a beauty to a photograph by itself without any alterations. Then there’s also an art to taking it a step further. Not only in how the photograph is taken but the process in the darkroom.
The image below is the last image I was able to manipulate in the darkroom. It was over exposed on inverted paper, then solarized. It still stands as one of my favorite images.
There is a great site I’ve been reading through for several years called Alternative Photography. If you end up with a bit of time, it’s a great place to get some good information of many different alternative processes.
