Today is certainly my day for dedications it seems.Remembering my foto-journalism days at university. After finally having recuperated access to some of my past archives by recovering a hard drive, I came across something last night that I started working on quite a while back. Re-photographing my own contact sheets & creating new old works. I also feel like testing the waters at JPG mag to see if taking photos of ones own archives falls within the parameters of being usable images according to the rules on JPG
I tend not to use photoshop, to much wasted time. I always upload to iPhoto & use the adjustments settings, as if it where a colour enlarger, like in the days of the darkroom processing colour prints.
So, if that is considered too digitally modified then I am afraid a colour photograph stripped of all its colour is also to be considered too digitally modified, NO? I teak my contrast, colours and exposure not unlike a print to be produced for an exhibition. This simply said I think that I abide by the JPG rules. Now, this may be a case of personal printing (styles) techniques & how I photograph my images. I believe this image falls within all respects of the rules.
NOW, U be the judge?
