Silver Gelatin Scenes

Silver Gelatin Scenes – What you may think of when you think of a regular B&W photo is technically called a “silver gelatin” print. This type of photography reached it’s peak before digiltal photography mostly took over. However, there’s been a recent revival in this type of print and photography – many feel it has a nicer feel to it that digital cannot compete with. The images here are all shot with film and developed in-house the “old school” way using a variety of medium and large format cameras including a Rolliflex 3.5f 6×6 , Bronica ETRSi 6×4.5, and an Intrepid 4×5 MkIV large format camera. They are then printed on a variety of photo papers using a 4×5 enlarger in my darkroom. When I think it may or may not add to the image, I will further tone them in sepia toner.
