Fuji FP100C negative series (some NSFW bits)
« on: September 08, 2016, 03:23:21 PM »
Ever since I noticed a latent image on the negative peel-apart piece, aka the trash, of Fuji peel-aparts I've saved them and scanned them as positives. They work much like tintypes in that they are negatives on a black backing, giving the impression of a positive.  However, they are darker and otherwise more obscure because of the chemical goop and their susceptibility to dust and fingerprints. I don't know why I get the different colors -- tried to trace it back to light and temperature but I can't figure it out.

They were shot in a Chamonix 4x5 with an old petzval lens. I think I have a more or less coherent series at this point...

I really like them.  However, my eyesight's far from 100% and the darkness / low contrast doesn't make them the easiest viewing for me....

I know they're not the easiest to view so I appreciate the effort! They work best in a darkened room (with a stiff drink).

The last three are particularly strong/mesmerising. Great stuff!

Hell yeah! Keep these coming. The back/butt/hip/hand shot is wonderful. It's like it's come straight from the pages of a 1950's catalog at least as far as the colours are concerned).

Thanks, Ed.

Based on the recent critique I had, here's the revised edit (with trimmed off borders)
