I have been pretty sick for the past week or so and haven't been on Flickr much. Feeling much better now and will try to catch up on everyone streams as soon as possible. Spent the weekend at my in-laws house which is surrounded by woods, a great opportunity for me to experiment with some ICM. The fall colors were amazing but just couldn't resist B&W. I will most likely post some color versions on my alternate stream which can be found here.

More industrial work coming soon.

Now for something a bit different. I have been experimenting with some different post-processing techniques. I am working on some ways to create a more aged look to my piezographic prints and trying to replicate that look in the digital file as well. Not sure where this is going but having some fun with it for now.

I have been busy experimenting with various methods of printing on aluminum. There are many variables to work out but am making progress and will be offering aluminum prints as a service as soon as I get the bugs worked out. I am working on getting a custom profile for this material as it accepts ink much differently than fine art papers. The biggest challenge has been creating a finished product. Here I have flush mounted the aluminum print on a wood art panel, then finished with an ebony stain. I also am experimenting with a floating mount design. The finished print is much better viewed in person as the aluminum gives the image a very three dimensional look, something that does not translate well in this photograph. I am very excited about this method and you can expect to see more aluminum printing from me soon.

Detroit, Michigan

Another experimental one. Detroit's abandoned Michigan Central Station is probably the most photographed subject in Detroit and is the preeminent symbol of the rise and fall of The Motor City.

A rare look from deep in my archives. This platinum print was made about 15 years ago using a high resolution halftone negative made from a digital image file. It was one of many tests I made as I was searching for a solution to make platinum prints from digital files.

At first, the halftone negative appeared to be a valid (and cost effective) solution, but one will soon discover by looking at the image with a loupe (click here for full size image) that the halftone process is not continuous tone, but a simulation of continuous tone through the use of varying sizes and spacing of dots.

Platinum printing is revered by photographers and collectors because of their unmatched tonal range, surface quality and archival permanence. That being said, photographic purists would find making platinum prints with halftone negatives a blasphemous endeavor.

Shortly after this I discovered Piezography which was the first purely digital black & white printing process that produced results that rivaled traditional processes. I have not looked back since... until now...
