On the Set

Venture on the set with our wedding clients Alex and Liz, then follow us into the darkroom as we print archival traditional black and white negatives for a final fine art presentation. Photographed with New 55 film, a reincarnation on the polaroid type 55 4×5 large format film.

The film produces both a negative and positive and negative print.  The negative contains a chemical pod which develops after shooting, and I can fix, and dry the negative, right in my own make shift darkroom, which I convert from the bathroom!  The film is not perfect, and it’s the happy accidents that make it so great.  Each one is original with it’s own unique characteristics.
