  So i’ve been doing a lot of printing since getting my darkroom setup.  The only problem now is that i have almost run out of negatives i want to make prints off so i guess ill have to get back out with the gear and get shooting.

  I thought i would share these prints which i am pretty happy with, they were taken on a recent trip to the Lake District and are close-ups of a rotting tree i found fallen next to a river.  Im sure in ten years time ill look back and think they’re terrible but at the moment im pretty happy with them (apart from the occasional hairs that keep cropping up in a few places).  I’d love to hear what you think about them.


  1. Well, these are really lovely. You did manage to find a good amount of contrast with these (which I myself always find challenging). The prints are crisp and the detail is amazing.

    1. Thanks very much Laura - nice to get some feedback from a fellow printer! what are yo uworking on these days??

  2. You're welcome! I'm exploring colour double exposures at the mo and I got myself a Lubitel for that. Just picked up my first roll and it's a major fail...well, I'm gonna work on that. I hope to go back to BW and my darkroom as soon as the autumn sun turns grey (soon enough)

  3. nice - everyone enjoys a good old lubitel. perseverance is the key! the grey days are indeed coming but i love autumn-i have many photoshoots planned...
