Ludington Waterfront Park "Reflections", printed in darkroom

One of my first real attempts at darkroom printing. I purposely chose a silhouette thinking it would be a little more forgiving :-)


This one is 100% the way it was done "back in the day". Shot on an Argus C3 manual camera, negative developed at home, and printed thru an enlarger at home in the darkroom.


I am going to list the details below. Since I am new to this, anybody please feel free to tell me what I could have done differently to make the image better. I'm actually kind of happy with it for a first attempt.


It seems to look better on black.
