Scanning Albumen prints is next to impossible, but this is close enough. I had some coating problems but overall I’m happy with it.
The grain isn’t nearly as pronounced in reality.
Rescan of the previous image with the school’s Epson V750 Pro as opposed to my V500. The difference is always super crazy.
One of the photos today from my adventure! I only took two (woods in suburbia are only so interesting) but I have big plans for the other shot I’m developing tomorrow. Like, wall sized big. So hopefully it comes out like I want it to.

Gear shot before photo adventure!
Final assignment for my photo class this semester. It’s about the relationship between myself and my finals this past week.
Gum Bichromate on 140# Fabriano Artistico Hot Press.
1 layer of Holbein Compose Green No.2. Exposed for 4 minutes, 35 seconds. Developed for around 10 minutes. Original negative 4x5 Fuji Acros 100.
Gum Bichromate Recipe:
Mix thoroughly and apply to paper with two layers (while still wet so it ends up being a total of 1 layer) using a 1in flat wash brush (larger depending on your surface area).
My assignment in my broadcasting class this week was to create my own version of a radio segment entitled “This I Believe”. The idea started as radio essays by broadcaster Edward R. Murrow in the 1950s. More recently NPR has started up their own version of the segment.
I decided to discuss the magic of a home darkroom and I think it turned out half decent. Not sure why it’s static-y in the first few seconds, it wasn’t like that before I exported it.
Run time is 2:13.
My coworkers like to practice levitation sometimes. It’s very effective for getting work done.
Next photography assignment forced perspective. It’s supposed to be without the use of Photoshop; here’s a preliminary shot.
