Delving into ‘history to find something new’ again, I rediscovered these B+W negs (what else!) of seashells. I took a series of shots using a table lit with two lamps at 45 degrees to the table.
And yes it was in the ‘lab’. I noticed that these seashells could rock back and forth by themselves for a short while if given a slight push. My photographic brain at the time thought this might be interesting.
Twenty years later Im reaping the rewards. I only worked on the image just couple of days ago. It would have taken much more time and expense using the old ways of traditional darkroom chemistry-and not as fun. I get instant results on the screen and easily save it for later use. I just love photoshop.
