Vignetted Portrait VIGNETTED PORTRAIT WITH COPPER TONING

This technique involves photographing a vertical portrait with a dark background, and using a wide lens opening to blur out that background. It is then copper toned with a solution to give it an older, antique look. This was taken across the street from my house.

Blue Tone BLUE TONED SCENE

This involves finding a scene that would look good in a blue color, including water and snow scenes. The photograph is printed darker than normal and then washed in a blue toner. It was taken at Coyote Hills near the Dumbarton Bridge.

Cityscape SPECIAL SHOOTING TECHNIQUE: CITYSCAPE

This technique involves finding an appealing and interesting angle of a cityscape and using the landmarks as a frame for the picture. This photograph was taken from the top of Coit Tower in San Francisco.

Combination Print  

COMBINATION PRINT

Combination printing is done by combining more than one negative on the same piece of printing paper by printing two different negatives on the same paper before developing the picture. This was a cloud scene, combined with a cityscape of San Francisco.

 

Photogram PHOTOGRAM

Instead of printing a picture with a negative, this is done by using small objects with interesting shapes and placing them directly on the printing paper and then developing the picture.

Sabattier SABATTIER

This technique involves taking a photograph of a highly detailed scene, like a tree with a lot of branches. The printing paper is exposed to the negative, developed partially and then wiped and zapped with normal light. This creates a reversal of the image colors, with black and silver colors. This was taken at Coyote Hills.

Colored Print HAND-COLORED PRINT

This involves photographing an image that would look good in tints of color. The photograph is printed lighter than normal. Then, oils of different colors are rubbed into the picture using cotton balls.
