Field Video - Hand Staining Photo Rag Paper For Floral Still Life Backgrounds - Video 3

June 02, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

In this third video in this series, I headed out to my land in the Ozark Mountains and used the hand-stained backgrounds while exposing some Tri-X 320 at EI-250 developed in XTOL 1:1 for 7.5 minutes on my Jobo. 

I will be posting a fourth and final video when I make some silver gelatin prints in the darkroom that I will share with you.  I will be sending updates on this to my newsletter subscribers.  


I started this series by experimenting with a new way to make some backgrounds for my floral still life and wildflower photos while in the field. An old trick that us flower photographers use from time to time is to place a background behind our flowers so that we can stop down the lens and get greater definition or to eliminate undesirable elements and clutter from our compositions.  I go over this extensively in my Large Format Floral Still Life Video Workshop, in case you are interested.
