    Emil, I love this shot and how creative you always are. bravo!

    Here is an image shot from Tunnel View on a special morning. A very difficult carbon print to make. I'm going to still work on it a bit I think.

    Hi Jim,

    Love this picture! I guess I have to go to Yosemite more often to increase my chance to capture somehting like that.

    It looks pretty sweet. I have wondered about those UV curing lights the dentist uses to cure the new coating and fillings on one's teeth. Depending on the wavelengths of UV those lights put out, I think they may make nifty burning tools for carbon printing!

    I like that the image is "backwards". It gives that traditional view a twist.

    Vaughn and Hugo thanks. This is a tough print to make. This was my first print. Still need to work on the sky clearing out all of the pigment. I printed this on a mat paper to give it the "feel" that it needed. I love that it is backwards as well! It makes one question the image?

    Jim, I have an 8x10 carbon print with Yosemite Falls in the background, Japanese tourists taking a snapshot in the foreground, and an interpretive sign proclaiming Yosemite falls to be the "Crowning Glory" of the Park. The sign takes good eyesight or a magnifier to read, and since it is backwards it gives the viewer a clue on why the Falls looked just a little different, too.

    A couple images I have with El Capitian as the background would have some climbers shaking their heads, but most people would need a side-by-side comparison to pick up on the carbon prints being "backwards".

    This is a wonderful image, Jim. I was instantly transported back to the late 1800s. This has a very real presence. Bravo. If you can print it better, I'd love to see it!

    Thanks everyone. I'm having trouble clearing the pigment from the highlights in this shot. Just need to do some refinements and try again.

    Platinum on linen paper.


    Larger image and more details over at Flickr.

    I was rather surprised by the slight dark steel blue cast the Platinum got on this paper… as opposed to all other papers I know, where the cast ranges from grey to brown hues…
