I love photography. I love the journey that photography has taken me on, and I continue to enjoy exploring the possibilities available to appreciate the fruits of my photographic labor.
Last month, I tested and reviewed MacPhun’s Tonality Pro black and white conversion software (click here to read more on that). I really enjoyed talking with Alex and Kevin from MacPhun about their software, and getting some insight into both the software and the people behind it. Long story short, I consider it the best black and white conversion software I’ve personally used. Upon finishing my review, I was referred to one of their partners in Digital Silver Imaging, a unique print lab specializing in black and white printing. DSI offers a variety of printing solutions, but one in particular was fascinating to me. Using a laser enlarger, they convert and project your digital image file onto light sensitive, silver gelatin, black and white photo paper which is then processed in black and white photo chemistry. Why, and what benefit might this have for those of us that have moved into the digital realm? Come on in for more information about the process, and why I think it might be the best way to archive your favorite black and white, digital images.
