This week I made contact prints of some large format negatives I shot before Thanksgiving break. They all turned out fairly well. I had to use regular white paper, because the class stash of Oriental warm toned paper ran out.
Above are photos of the Silver Lake Mill near Dayton. The top left image is the one that perhaps interests me the most because of the slice of focus that runs along the middle ground. It’s part of the language of large format that makes normally sized things appear toy-like.
These photos are from Mossy Creek Presbyterian Church. This Hogshead grave is where my grandmother is buried. There are a lot of Hogsheads buried in this cemetery, because of our rich old family history in the area. My great grandparents and I believe my great great grandparents are also there. The old iron fence has been grown over by that large aging tree.
