Book Review - The Light Farm, Handmade Silver Gelatin Emulsions
It isn't often that I review darkroom photography books, but I felt a sense of duty to make my readers aware of the new book: The Light Farm, Handmade Silver Gelatin Emulsions written by Denise Ross.
If you even have the slightest bit of interest in making your own emulsions for your films, prints, or negatives, you will find this book to be a treasure. The book is well researched and written by someone that walks the talk. The helpful insights and tips throughout the book are pure gold for anyone starting out and even those like myself that have been at this for many years.
I am also excited that people like Denise are committed to the art and craft of traditional analog photography and make personal investments of time to create contemporary treasures like this book.
You can preview the book on Blurb and purchase it there as well, as I did. Let's support this book and keep Denise working to produce the next volume.

Follow me on my St. Francois Mountain Platinum Histograph Heirloom Fine Art Print Project where I am photographing the St. Francois Mountains that were formed by volcanic and intrusive activity 1.5 billion years ago. By comparison, the Appalachians started forming about 460 million years ago, and the Rockies a mere 140 million years ago.
