Serbian Orthodox church

    Newer Older

    The Serbian Orthodox church on Port Road. This is a scan of a print I made in 2003 using traditional darkroom methods. I used a technique called the Sabatier effect that gives the photo this look. The original photo wasn't particularly interesting, but with the special process applied it changed the look of the picture completely.

    This was my first attempt at it, which was quite successful-this picture won Best special effects image, and Best Year 12/13 exhibit in show at the 2003 Royal Adelaide Show. It's one of my early favourites and a print that gets a lot of comments. I tried doing the process again but never managed to make it look like this one. And now I can't really remember how I did it. Taken with a Canon EOS 3000 on Ilford XP2 film. I think.

      This is so awesome. I just did some sabatier work today, but it didn't come out as good as your pic. Amazing...

      This is a great image! I studied yr 12 Photography at Marden in 2005 : )

      Loved looking at all of your pics, I recognised most of the places, I've just never had the urge to photograph my surrounds.

      Hey Rohan! I just noticed this in the group: flickr.com/groups/my1st-favourite-photo-of_mine/pool/

      Thanks for adding one of if not THE first fave photo of yours...
      Tremendously cool, mate. Thanks for sharing the fantastic photo & background info!

      What's very interesting about this photo is how you achieved it via a not so standard darkroom effect... and the extra work (as well as accolades) likely made heaps of difference in how you felt about the image, yourself & photography.

      I, too, just noticed this in MY FIRST FAVO(U)RITE PHOTO I EVER MADE! I've never seen this effect on a photo before or if I did, it looked different from this! REally amazing effect in on a stationary object! It's amazing that the details in the architecture is so crisp. I'm not sure if this is possible to achieve in PhotoShop which makes it even greater!

      I love this shot so much, the tones and geometry are wonderful, it just has that special something that conects with me and I think it is quite beautiful.

      Cool photo!
      Ah, I remember the "Sabatier effect" from my darkroom days years ago, though it's so long that I forget the difference between this and darkroom solarization.

      Great photo!
