Method

There is nothing quite like a contact print from a large negative. It is for this reason I use a 5x7 camera and make contact prints on silver chloride paper, either Azo or Lodima developed in amidol.

The range of tones is pleasing and I never tire of viewing prints made in this manner.

I've settled on one developer and one film; Pyrocat HD and Ilford Fp4+.

Focus

My primary interest is in capturing evanescent light when it is highlighting form.

This light is fleeting and one must be in the right place at the right time of day and year, and to be sensitive to the changing conditions.
