No photoshop was used on this image (obviously with the exception of scanning.) It is a paper internegative transfer, meaning all the interpretation was done in the darkroom, with retouching done by hand in pencil on the back of the paper internegative. It's a very tedious and time consuming process, but it's quite artistically rewarding.

The image was actually shot in flat daylight; the lighting is courtesy of the pencil retouching.

    Hauntingly beautiful image...I love this kinda of imagery as it leaves much more to one´s imagination as 2 what is really going on... This would make a great CD album cover foto.

    Wow. If you lived near me I'd pay you to walk me through how you did this. Fascinating work.

    Its always so nice to see someone that still practices (dare I say it) "old Fashioned" dark room techniques. This really is an amazing effect. Looks great !
