i haven’t posted here in a few months for a variety of reasons. but i am here again with a handful of photographs … as seen in a few other of my blog posts, i have been having fun making trichromes.
they are FULL color photographs made using separation filters ( RBG ) and panchromatic black and white film. about 30 years ago my uncle ( a professional photographer in western massachusetts ) told me about making trichromes but i didn’t have access to a color darkroom, so i never made any. NOW, since i am able to compile the images using photoshop i am making them often. i even have a polaroid 500 portrait camera and i have started to make portraits and stereo tri chromes.
here are a few images .. they don’t have any hidden meaning, they are just fun. oh, in case you wanted to know the vital statistics … they were all taken with expired black and white film which was hand processed in a combination of coffee based developer ( sumatranol ) and ansco 130.
