Hi all- it's been a long time since I put an actual image up here in F295 and today I aim to begin changing that and posting with more frequency!

Here's a recent experiment: Kallitype on Arches Platine. Hand colored with water colors. Image from digital capture, digital neg made using the Charthrob calibration method - which after a few tries I finally figured out how exactly to make it work!

This image was made when I was on a guided mushroom hunt on an organic farm not too far from my home here in SW Pennsylvania... it was a gorgeous day in the woods - and we found a lot of interesting and some edible mushrooms.
