scanners suck lol


haha wow! :D wel i didnt expect this to be so popular :D lol

the reason "scanners suck" by the way is beacuse when i tried to scan this on to my computer ( me being not so good with technology) kept doing it wrong the first time i tried to scan it i had the print the wrong way round :giggle:

Also if you look closely there is a faint blue line across the picture from teh scanner! hmmmm

.....as i did explain to a few people before i got the DD that it was a compleate accident that the shot is how it is... again as im a total idiot exposed the wrong side of the paper and then turned it over and did it again ... and i have been told that i should own up to it being a mistake but ohh well :giggle:

This is fantastic! I found this via a google search for darkroom. I at first thought it was a double exposure..

But you said you exposed the wrong side of the paper? Do you mean the non-reactive side? And what gave you the effect of having the double image on top? The error in the darkroom, or with the scanner?

I am currently working with film, and I am trying to figure out new, different ways of using enlarger and such... let me know anything else, if you are willing to share... this is just an amazing image... I stared at it for a long time!

Thank you, and nice work! Even if it was a mistake

Thankyou :), it was an error in the darkroom, I exposed the backside of the back paper (non reactive side) and then when i realized my error i just flipped it over and exposed the right side not really thinking that the 1st exposure would have had an effect, this was one of the 1st times I ever used the darkroom.

What kinds of things do you want to know, I'm not a pro but i have a fair bit of experience in the darkroom b+w and colour xx

It looks almost industrial. I love the old fashioned look.
