Temple Daffodils

Taken in Iwaki, Fukushima Japan at an 800 year old Shinto shrine.  Image was shot with a Leica M6 35mm camera and 50mm lens using Kodak Tri-X 400 film.

This is not a digital print – both the negative and the print were developed by myself in my darkroom.

Outside of the actual photography, the process of making a print of this quality is somewhat complex and requires skill, knowledge, and time. Some of the steps to produce a silver gelatin print include:

  • Enlarge the image from film on an enlarger and expose for the appropriate contrast grade, for the appropriate amount of time.
  • Develop, fix, and wash the print for 45 minutes in continuously flowing water to remove all traces of remaining chemistry.
  • Dry the print for several days, where it will then curl.
  • Press the print flat in a special hot mount press.

The result will be, when made skillfully, a silver gelatin print will last hundreds of years.
