10.22.2020 Digital Positive…Digital Negative



Just some iPhone fun processed in Photoshop. The first is as was intended when shot.  The second was when I applied a little Gradient Map to the black and white before reversing it. I liked the effect so am sharing.

    It is a constant wonder what we can do with the available digital tools. In this instance, I greatly prefer the traditional rendering.

    • So do I. But I’ve always, when there was the option of black and white film negatives, enjoyed their appearance and thought this was interesting. It isn’t anything I’d make a habit of doing but thought it would be fun to share.

        I remember being frequently surprised by how difficult it was to imagine how what I was seeing in color negatives would look in positive images, probably because I never expanded my darkroom to include color processing. It was so easy to get used to the monochrome world.

      • My only darkroom was color…Cibachrome…and I printed from color transparencies. But when I shot black and white film I enjoyed looking at the negatives. I had a few friends who shot B&W and watched them develop and print from the negs.

  4. In the old film days, I occasionally liked a negative more than its positive. In this case, I prefer the original.
