i am still learning now to scan and produce images for the web. i find it fairly frustrating — dust on prints or negatives, dust in the scanner, the scanner not pulling out all the times, different color profiles, file formats and storage. what i consider “photography” has its perils and roadblocks, but none of this stuff is what i signed up for. i’m glad i’m not scanning all the time, it would probably force me more offline in my work.
this is erik leung, a local digital photographer. we agreed to do mutual portraits, and we went to this wonderful spot he had previously scouted. the sun was already getting low but i managed to get in a good shot at iso 2500. the sun made a wonderful backlight.
i contact printed this image on ilford glossy rc, part of a growing collection of images of photographers.
