That special glow, in fact the special treatment of highlights is Washi F's signature. While I am not normally a fan of a bald sky, this film forces it. It is not sensitive to red light, and I don't have a green filter capable of darkening the sky. As far as monochromatic symbollism goes, the white sky seems appropriate.While I like all, as others, I also have to agree:
Still on track is the winner. You'll criticize me for looking besides the main subject, but: the reflection adds. The burnt out sky. The trees and their silhouettes, especially the two right behind Royce, looking as if they were one. The special 'glow'.
I knew it!Yes you shot that about 60 years ago, must be Octoberfest 1962. Then you forgot it, until now...
Royce watches a lot of You Tube with kids over acting. I joke with him about it sometimes. But also, I think he's a natural!What youtube's that face from ?
I've had this roll of film for a couple years, it was labeled "8 shots taken". So I ditifully advanced the roll in the camera to exposure #10 and set-up and shot my double exposure of the pumpkin Olivia carved of her own face, and Royce in the same position. The alignment worked really well, I'm glad of that! But what I didn't realize was that the entire roll of film had been exposed with mundane stuff from around the house I used to live in. Additionally, several years of storage did not treat this film well. The base density looked like a bright highlight, requiring very deep scanning to get the image to come out! And there seemed to be some sort of ... blistering? along the edge.Hehe, yes, cross processing, multi exposure, strange things ... were all possible, have all been done, in film before! Glad you show something special, here!
None-the-less, it's got that artsy, post-post-modern look that only ruined film can truly show. Thanks for looking and helping me to understand the picture.
