|HP5+, Ilford Warmtone RC paper 10"x8"|
Talking of flat, this print is a bit flat, but I find myself increasingly rebelling against the prevailing necessity for every snap to rendered at the highest contrast possible. I blame Salgado but it's probably just jealously on my part. It's not Salgado's fault, of course - if anything, it's more that most images are being viewed on computer screens these days...that backlit technology sure makes for snappy images but when you've a B&W print in your hand, or on the wall, you want to see some mid-tones. Well I do, anyway. Not that the print above is the finest example of mid-tones and I'm quite aware that I'm rambling incoherently so I'll stop now.
