I finally got around to making prints of some HIE negatives I have had for awhile. This was an experiment with split-grade printing (thanks to Les McLean for his great beginner's tutorial!). Printed at Grade 0 and 5 only. "Riding Cyclops" This next one (from another HIE negative) was a real challenge to print! It was a tricky exposure based on the time of day and the shadows of the dune against that blinding sunset. I made three separate exposures here, one for the foreground, one for the upper sky, and a final one to really burn in that strip of sky just above the dune. Challenging, but darkroom fun! I've shown this to one person and he immediately pronounced it "creepy". Sand dune sunset: Thanks for looking.
