This is a photo I shot of my sister a couple weeks ago...I managed to grab her when she was waiting for her girly friends. I got a new Carl Zeiss lens and wanted to try it out. Anyway, we have an ugly backyard, so my sister grabbed this zig-zag blanket some old lady gave us, and used it as a backdrop. Not the best backdrop... Anyway, 6x6 Ilford HP5 film, scanned w/Nikon Coolscan 5000...in Photoshop, I made a duplicate layer, and did a Gaussian blur Overlay blend mode. It really pumps up the contrast. My favorite technique, but I think I use it too much!
