Week 3 wet work

leave a comment »

Week three of Photography 2 and we have been taking black and white shots and working in the wet area of the processing labs. The university has a large darkroom facility and this has not been used a great deal of late probably because of the recent move in the photographic world to the use of digital cameras and computer processing with photoshop and other programmes .

I for one love and appreciate the capabilities of the digital workflow but I am really happy and grateful that the powers that be have decided not to let the chemical side of photography die. This would have been a great pity in my opinion as one compliments the other. We have seen the phenomena of Miroslav Tichy and his non digital shots and heard the words of  Picasso on his discovery of photography so now we are also  at last happy with the art.
