    as long as were naming processes, might as well go full out -- "papier noir" or "papel negro" (sorry, those are the only two language I can mangle besides English)

    great shot, the "Marshall" looks electric... is this with available light, indoors?

    Thank you, Darryl. The scene was lit with fluorescent light. I have a "vertical light desk" standing next to the amp, I used a large sheet of paper as a reflector. The logo is made of very bright white plastic.

    Hello from France
    It is my pleasure to point you to a nice paper negative work by Alain Gayster.
    The sensitive paper is home-made by the photographer himself.
    The work is done in the spirit of the French Mission Héliographique of the XIX-st century.

    See page 5 of this pdf document : right, the original paper negative, left, a positive contact copy.
    http://www.editionsgaud.com/download/noirlac.pdf

    The images are an extract of book about Noirlac abbey (France) just published, text bi-lingual French & English

    Noirlac(s) Réel(s) photographique(s) / Photographic realities
    March 2008, 26 x 27 cm , 216 pages, 170 photographs B&W + colour, Éditions Gaud, France ISBN: 978-2-84080-178-8

    This has probably been mentioned before by someone much more knowledgable than me, but here goes anyway.

    Right at the end of Burden of Dreams, Les Blank's documentary of the making of Herzog's Fitzcarraldo (one of my favourite films of all time) there is a charming sequence showing a street photographer taking a photo of Werner Herzog. He uses a paper negative, developed in the back of the camera, and withdrawn through a small light trap in the side. Then he frames the negative in a (negative) decorated surround and rephotographs that with the same camera. I'm going from memory, so I could have made a few errors.

    Best,
    Helen

    Re: Paper Negs Only

    my first test on the Efke positive paper. I've brightened it up in the scan, the print is darker. I metered for ISO 6, I'll try the opposite end of their suggested ISO next, ISO 1. Since we're on the topic of shooting paper, anyone know what kind of reciprocity this positive paper might have? This shot was f6.8 for 25 seconds, developed in Dektol.

    It's strange seeing the paper be a positive image developed right out of the camera, and it's also strange seeing the print be mirrored! It doesn't look like my kitchen, haha!

    I found this post quite useful when dealing with reciprocity failure of Ilford Multigrade RC: http://spitbite.org/pinhole-discussi...0012/0792.html
    I have no idea how different the positive paper is.

    putnam turnpike (near the central landfill)

    i woke up one morning and the sky was grey
    the sun was bright, summer sun
    i wasn't sure where i was, the trucks passing woke me
    the barn in the distance, falling down, gave me a clue
    my head still hurt and as i began to look around
    i sort of remembered bits and pieces
    a late night scuffle
    the club
    and the trunk
    i watched the box trucks pass me by
