SomethingWickedThisWayComes... by AngelusNoir SomethingWickedThisWayComes... by AngelusNoir
Just thought I'd put something cute & Easterish, a Solarisation experiment, on my page
.....this is my old cat & wild garden....now you see why he's called Teddy Bear?

[*Kodak RetinetteII,Film; Solarised in dark room & levels adjusted in Photoshop]

Would you happen to have any tips on the darkroom process of solarisation? I have to make a presentation on it, and I need all the help I can get!

Well,I'm not much of an expert!:XD: I did this as part of an experimental darkroom techniques course...but the technique I used was basically this ->
**Basic Technique
[link]

..if I were writing about it,I would refer to :
**Man Ray & Solarisation=
[link]

**a fairly useful article=
[link]

**the Sabattier effect=
[link]

...it's a very easy but highly variable effect....you can mimic it in Photoshop with curves..but you don't get the delicate tones you do with film [I used Kodak 'machine film' here->considered a "professional" b&w film that gives a wide range of tones [-> [link] ..not sure if it was the 100/400 though?....I'd have to get the negative out of storage!!;)]]
Good luck with your presentation,hope that helps!

He's a beauty o_o. I love your kitties :heart:. Someday, I'll have to meet them XP.

Did I mention he reminds me the cat in Neil Gaiman's story "the Black Cat"? And like my black-cat-friend, he looks human.

Thank you for convincing me all true black cats are actually human. I"m not referring to those mass-produced stick-figures who roam the streets, of course XP

Thanks!! :hug:I'm a big fan of Lee Miller/Man Ray...it's a process called solarisation (it's a bit hit & miss!)...& yes, you're right! It makes parts of the image negative...as a manic cat-lover (my collection of strays is legendary!!)

And one thing I forgot to mention is the kinda oldfashioned feel that there is in this pic that I like :)
