    Glad I found your blog. Incredible stuff. My girlfriend does some x-pro and her photos arent nearly as skilled as yours. Hope she doesn’t read this . . .

    Everyone seems to be shooting Elite Chrome. What are your thoughts on it? By the way, your photos are stunning.

  5. Unique composition and execution. I really like it.

    I don’t know if I can explain this in a few words but we have this raging controversy in our local camera club on what constitutes a photograph and what a digitally manipulation image (i.e. photoshop and the like). I directed some folks to your site for examples of what can be done with film. You do things with film that I can’t even dream of doing with my Photoshop skill set.

    Very well done!

  6. Terry – Thanks.

    James – Good to see you.

    Xavier – lol. Thank you. X-pro is pretty fun stuff.

    Halen – Wonderful film. If processed regularly, it produces some stunning blues. Cross-processed, it typically produces a really cool shade of aquamarine.

    Ed – That’s the cool thing about cross-processing: you can attempt to fake it in Photoshop, but only in the darkroom can you get the right tones and textures. I’ve also been experimenting with double exposures, something that can easily be done in Photoshop but that looks more ghostly on film.
