Coffee Cup Handle

Film Photography

coffee cup handle and countertop. this was made using a film camera, probably a olympus ft half frame 35mm camera. like most of my black and white photographs it was processed in a developer made with ... coffee. i have been using coffee to process my film and paper for about 7 years and as you can see, it works very well !


i have been a freelance photographer since about 1988, shooting everything from weddings to portraits to site architecture / documentation. while i have and use digital cameras, i would rather my initial image be created using traditional materials. i use film and paper and glass and metal as negatives. i coat things myself with emulsion. in addition to silver based images, i also make iron based ones, called cyanotypes.
