Welcome! Please send the portraits that fit to the group description. There's no moderation, so check the pool and follow the line. Invite your favorite pictures if you like. Enjoy experimenting.

Group Description

Do you like creative use of common darkroom techniques? Do you like portraits that are dramatic and emotional? Do you like raw, rough or gritty portraits? Do you like these things together? What about a group for strong portraits through original lighting or strong (violent) processing?

Do you feel you have achieved an original style for your portraits through the use of contrast filters, dodging & burning, film-based techniques (pushing films, playing with developers' times)? Show us your work.

This is the place for those who believe you can be creative also in what comes after the shutter has been released.

Please add portraits that have been postprocessed with darkroom (-like, for photoshoppers, i.e curves, levels, dodge & burn tool) tools only.

Invite photos with this easy code:
