Hollywood, CA October, 2006
Description: The image was made on October 14, 2006 with an Ebony 45s 4x5 non-folding view camera on Kodak TXP 320 film rated at ISO 250. The lens was a Nikkor 210mm and utilized a red filter (#25). The exposure was 1/8 second at f22. Development was 11 minutes (N+2) and took place in trays using Kodak HC-110 developer at unofficial Dilution H.

I used a split-grade (0/5) exposure and burned the sky in several passes of a rectangular-shaped card concentrating slightly more time at the top of the print. Several of the prints differ in the amount of burning given to the sky. The paper is Bergger VCCM FB developed in Ethol LPD 1:2 for 2 ½ minutes and selenium toned 1:10 for 1 minute. This is an older box of paper and some prints may exhibit a very slight edge fog or marks.
The image was made from a Barnsdall Park overlook in Hollywood, California, also the site of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House.

About the photographer

I’m a professional musician and an amateur photographer. Film is my passion and wet darkroom printing has become an obsession in the last six months. I believe that a print is an object in itself, the medium through which the image reveals itself. I love the variety of papers, developers and toners; the myriad ways in which they combine to create a unique look for each print. I like the happy accidents that can happen in the darkroom, the moment when an unintended “mistake” opens my eyes to a different way of seeing. I accept and wholeheartedly embrace these moments of perspective that help me learn more about photography and myself.
