    Here are a couple from the "abandoned garage" shoot I did over Memorial Day weekend. This was my first real chance to play with the Mamiya 645. :love: I have a few more negatives I'm interested in printing, but have only had darkroom time for these two so far.

    These were printed on Ilford MG warm tone and developed in Ethol LPD 1:4 for an "ultra warm" combo. I split toned in a short diluted bleach bath with Fotospeed ST20 sepia.

    This was the front office of the old place. We were able to poke the door and walk right in. It was blistering hot outside that day, and inside with no circulation we were ready to melt!

    For fun, I masked off the back of the chair and the desk handles to retain their silver look. There was a battered old directory on the floor and I masked it, as well.

    We also headed to the main garage area. It was very dark back there and we blew off several frames, bracketing. On this image, I masked off the overhead fluorescent bulbs, the pail, and the forgotten glove in the bottom left.

    There was another little storage area back there that I shot, and hopefully I'll get those up soon. It was a hot and therefore uncomfortable shoot, but fun.

    Thanks for looking! :)

    How utterly dangerous of you to post that. ;)

    I may insist upon a lith image of yours, now that I have seen a sample. :thumbup:

    i need to keep in mind with whom i'm conversing when i type. that could've been disastrous.

    would bring me great pleasure to print a lith for you.
