Paper Negatives

Today we were introduced to the technique of creating paper negatives in the Photography class.

Using the negative strip to create a positive image on photo paper, then developing this, and using it in the enlarger to create a new image.

It gives a lovely ethereal effect.

Harks back to very early photographers who had to use it due to their technology.

Interesting exhibition at the NGA in New York

These days it is used as an 'alternative' technique.

I do like Steve Gobeils pictures on Flickr
