New 4"x5" Fuji Negative Recovery Work...

I've been working to improve my technique recovering negatives from 4"x5" instant fuji film.  I've been experimenting with different temperatures, processing times, and handling techniques trying to produce cleaner, better exposed negatives with wider tonal range.  Saturday morning I traveled to my hometown of Bargersville, Indiana with my Aunt to check out an abandoned farm that she knew of.  I exposed a roll of 35mm film out there and I set up for a little 4"x5" fuji work with my Crown Graphic.  Here's a look at were I'm at with the fuji technique right now.  I still have some work to do but I feel like I am finally getting close to producing the negatives I previsualize in the field.  I'll be posting some of the 35mm work here on the blog soon...

New 4"x5" Fuji Work...

I had an opportunity to take a walk around a very unique property on the west side of Indianapolis yesterday morning.  The owners wanted me to keep their location anonymous so I will certainly respect their wishes.  Here is a large format shot I took with my old 4"x5" Crown Graphic.  I'll be posting 35mm work from this location in the coming weeks...

Azalia Schoolhouse...

This was another stop along the way to Nashville.  It was an old schoolhouse that had been used for a time as some sort of garage and then burned.  It had once been a beautiful little country schoolhouse...  Here it is today.
