    This was a partial solarization on Kodalith sheet film of an original B&W neg. The final print was hand coloured using Marshall's Photo Oils, which are translucent oil paints specifically made for this process. No Photoshop if that wasn't clear.

    Part of New Scans of Old Prints.

      Ah, this is lovely! Great shot, and beautiful (manual) processing!
      Found in your popular shots. (?)

      Very cool processing - thanks for explaining how you did it! Doing all that the old-fashioned way must be quite an experience - truly an art form. But how do you hit "undo" if it doesn't quite work out? :)

      Congratulations, you are the latest winner in the SUPER-SIZED Never-Ending Photo Contest at Global Village 2 (post 1 - give a globe to 5)
