...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!
aaawwww, love cat's: black cats, fat cats, skiny cats, bald cats-I LOVE CATS!! That's a bit of why I love this picture, I also like the inverted bg. Or atleast it look inverted, sorry if it's not but I do love this one!
Thanks!! 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!!)
