This week I worked on some old negatives of the past, that is film. Something the new cameras just don’t use anymore. Long gone for the most part with the exceptions of photographers that work with them. I do enjoy still seeing shots from those that continue the art of photographing with film. I got inspired when developing old family negatives into images, albeit on Lightroom now and not in the darkroom for a post on my other blog Tales From My Lens, and as such, this week’s Artsy Fartsy for 365 came into sight.
The flowers turned out a great colorful look. The cabbage was orignally white and had green around the edges.
I’ll be candid here, I like the hippie-dippie look of each shot and enjoy the outcome of a certain silence that the hidden colors a negative developed this way can portray. Again, it is in the eye of the photographer and viewer for all that matters. Just as some prefer color to black and white, some would never venture into this realm either.
The creative aspect of today’s available software on cameras are there to explore and with Lightroom, easily available, it is hard not to play around with the new techno at hand in post-processing.
A reverse of the positive isn’t always a negative. In the case of photography, it can be a very colorful shot as shown in the bench photo below.
The outcome of the deer horns picked up a chrome appeal. They are set under a table I use at the Not So Secret Grateful SHE’d Garden.
An exploration into the negative wasn’t so bad and quite frankly a lot of fun. Enough fun to do it again and see what else pops up on the screen. The shadows are always interesting.
Thanks for stopping in for the first artsy fartsy week of 365 2018. I know it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it is the exploration and changing it up that’ll keep this baby rolling. Looking forward to the next.
Til next time…
