hunting for snakes

Here is a new portrait I did this summer of children getting back to basics and enjoying being out in nature. Today technology runs the world and its great to see people getting back to basics and enjoy just being outside.

New print for Last Days of Summer

I recently got back into the darkroom to make a print of the negative I had taken of a Purple Moon Calla Lily. I took the photograph about 3 months ago but now was able to finally get a print made of it and it was worth the wait. The flower, which was growing in my yard and was the first and last of the plants that I would see on my ride was this beautiful deep purple that I know would look amazing on the black backdrop I have been using for the series. After processing the negative I could not wait to print it but due to work and shooting another project I was only now able to get a print made. To continue the series the like the rest is a contact print on Ilford warm tone multigrade fiber base paper. Now that the series is "mostly" complete I will start making 16x20" silver gelatin prints that also will be available for sale in the store section of my site.
