Morning photo: Plus-X

Contrasts …

Blue River, February 1, 2014.

FRISCO — As I edited this batch of digital files, I couldn’t help but think about the old non-digital darkroom days, and Kodak Plus-X black and white film, which, of course, was the standard for getting the most of an exposure under good light conditions. Nowadays, there’s no need to carefully check the temperature of the developer, or to push the development process to get that extra iota of depth — it’s all done with a few sliders and buttons. But the end result — a fully saturated B&W image covering the entire gray scale — is still the same. An image that, even in the absence of color, tells the story of light.
