I'm holding a remote flash unit which is the only light source. Can't find the original print -- this is actually a tone-seperated Kodalith multiple print I did later in the darkroom. The old, hard way, before Photoshop made it trivially easy to "posterize" a print into any number of tones. This one has just 3, I think - black, white, and one grey.

No darkroom tricks, just a straight print of a star trails shot, looks like maybe a half-hour or 45-minute exposure in the camera, back in the days when would just open 'er up for as long as it took, none of today's digital stacking and post processing. It's one of the few examples of the digital equivalent being LESS convenient.

Still plundering my back-catalogue. No trickiness here, for a change, just a straight print from negative. Photoshop used only for the scan just now, followed by some noise reduction, a wee bit of tonal adjustment, and just a hint of sepia...
About one quarter of a standard Scrabble tile, the Q, one of the two worth 10 points. Circa 1980 or so. This was done with my old Pentax, probably with both the 2x and 3x stacked together on a 135mm lens, with a close up filter or two for good measure. Ridiculously low-tech macro, but you work with what you have... Shot on B&W film, recent scan of my own print, some clean up done.
