Amazing Slime Molds

Posted 8/8/2017

Slime molds are strange organisms. While being only a single cell with several nuclei, they have remarkable capabilities. Some species can search their surroundings for food in such an effective manner that scientists are designing algorithms mimicking them.

 

Observing and studying slime molds is my new hobby. Here are some photos. First: ant walking on Lycogala epidendrum.

Double-lithium portraits

Posted 1/7/2017

I found some of my darkroom experiments from early 2000's. The technique for creating these ortraits was quite involved. The pictures were shot with a 4x5 view camera and a very strong studio flash on orthocromatic film Agfaortho. Why orthocromatic film? It is not sensitive to red light, so the negatives could be developed in the darkroom using lith developer while seeing the development in progress. This gives an extraordinary look to the highlights (dark parts of the negatives). The prints were developed in lith as well, producing strong blacks in the images. Finally, the prints were toned with sepia followed by gold. Enjoy!
