I had not been in the darkroom since printing some 5x7s for Ina and Chris’ wedding book or since I lost my job. About two and half months. Now buried by negatives I spent a fair amount of time and paper doing contact sheets (Generally usable sheets at setting 10 height on enlarger, f16, 10s). With the show coming up in March it’s important to make it a habit again as well as produce some good work prints. The performative aspect of dodging and burning felt foreign and contrived. Consequently I got some sub par results. Not discouraged though- excited to do more!
