I like shooting reflections at wide open aperture so that the reflection is brought out more.  Then dodging the highlights enough to make it articulate.  So that’s what’s going on there.  That and avoiding being social on the street - ordering food in and being a hermit.



Many of these images were captured on traditional film, shot on a Leica M3 or Rolleiflex - the negative scanned.  Others are digital photos, shot with a Leica Monochrom or Sony and adjusted in a digital darkroom. I’ve spend a good bit of my adult life in a darkroom - I’m interested in the best possible classic print, informed by the process of the traditional darkroom.  Digital Silver Imaging of Boston MA has a unique Ilford system that can take my adjustments and deliver a Silver Gelatin print - Silver prints will be stamped with our seal of authenticity.  A traditional archival bad assed darkroom print.
