Thread: Stables in soot

    Stables in soot

    This is a 3"x4.5" carbon print made to test my latest batch of tissue made from nice fresh chimney soot that collected over the winter The image was captured over Christmas on a paper negative with my baby 6x9cm view camera and the print made from a digital negative. I used a 100mm lens off an old Kodak folder which I swung to get the focus along the wall of the stables.

    The scan does not do the print justice; although there is no relief in the print, you can feel bumps from the larger particles of soot that remain in the shadow areas.

    Best regards,

    Very nice, Evan. It is good to see a carbon print from time to time.

    Very nice! Chimney (my German Grandmother called it a chimbley) soot, who'd a thunk........

    This has a very vintage look to it. I await more from your stash of soot .

    Yep, lamp black pigment. You can buy it, of course, but that's no fun!
    Nice work!

    Very nice picture and technique.

    Mary, I agree fully. This is a general statement valid for pinholers, not all but the most.

    Well, I would have to buy it. I don't have a chimney!

    Nice image by the way.
