That combination of Fomapan 200 exposed at 100ASA and developed in Aculux II or Fotospeed FD10, could bring tonality scale I loved. Look at this image for example (more…)

I have almost forgot about the following portrait. After the set of those, I was quite sure I showed you all I made in last week or two. I made this one in a certain, unconsciousness way.

Well, as you may expect he didn’t. (more…)
