Today’s featured photo of the day! Obscure Darkroom Magic
Here is today’s featured photo. I am featuring an extra special event of featuring a reflection of my favorite part of being in the darkroom…making art out of a regular photo! Here is a set of photos of a great summertime sunset with a tree in the foreground. A true show for infrared! Date – June 1981.
A work of art, not only with vignetted red but cyan skies in the colorization selections with selected selenium toners.
This is the original shot with no embellishments. (reprinted from my 9/28/19 Post)
Photo taken with tripod mounted Nikon EM camera through a Vivitar 70-150 zoom lens zoomed in at 135 mm, filter=red #25 filter, Aperture=22 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/8th second, loaded with Kodak High Speed Infrared HIE 135-20 Black & White Film processed using Kodak D-76 Chemicals using a black colored universal tank with metal reel. Enlargement processed 100% negative size onto 3½x5″ smooth semi-gloss image enlargement paper using Dektol/Stop Bath/Fixer chemistry.
See you tomorrow with another fine darkroom magic photograph!!

That’s a really cool picture! Very nice dark room magic!
These look like a 70’s album cover for “Black Sabbath”!
I’m not sure my sons would even know what a dark room is or was as all the magic is now digital.
