Photographic print toning

In analog photography, toning is a chemical process carried out on silver-based photographic prints. This darkroom process can not be done with a color photograph. Chemical toning[edit] Most toners work by replacing the metallic silver in the emulsion with a silver compound, such as silver sulfide (Ag2S) in the case of sepia toning. Toner also can increase the range of shades visible in a print without reducing the contrast. Selenium toning[edit] Selenium toning is a popular archival toning process, converting metallic silver to silver selenide.

Selenium toning may not produce prints quite as stable as sepia or gold toning. In most applications, selenium toning was not used for its sepia or red tone by fine art photographers. Artists.

This week Slickzine brings you a compilation of some of the most matchless examples of the awe-inspiring trend – shadow art.

Shadow Art beyond comparison!

In shadow art, specific items (often household) are put in a special order and a light is shone from a definite angle to produce a shadow. This shadow shows some kind of pattern, text, or photo. Shadow art is a rather unique style because each illustration undergoes great amounts of difficulty and detail. By looking at the examples of shadow art, one will observe the intelligent and creative use of items otherwise thought to be useless.

Some of the best examples available on the web are shown below. Incoming search terms: animal abuse artworkbeautiful hand picbeautiful hand pictureкартины черных фото Comments.

This is the last posting about the Photography and Fashion course which I attended at Instituto Italiano Di Fotographia in Milan this summer.

The Ministry of Noodles — Portrait and travel photographer based in Guangzhou, China

This two week summer course was designed to prepare the photographer for breaking into the world of fashion photography and, as well as providing a sound introduction to the processes involved in finding work in this industry. Naturally it provided some practical photography shooting experience and the location shooting exercise, was perhaps the area where I learned the most lessons. Selecting a location perhaps presents the biggest challenge. In the context of our short course -this experience could not have been made too elaborate for the sake of the logistics of having eight photographer participants, all needing access to equipment and support teams over the same time short period and in a variety of locations.

What's it all going to cost? Courtesy, knowledge and research. Simulate those conditions. Fashion is a topsy-turvy world by necessity.
