The stories behind the images on

Duotone Photography Prints

Duotone photography prints

Part of the process I use in creating my black and white prints is creating a duotone file of the image I’m working with. The above photograph of the Quantex Technologies building shows what the image looks like in duotone. The original photograph had full detail in the trees that surround the building and as I frequently do I use a technique call burning which darkens the selected area. Burning to make parts of the photograph darker and dodging to make them lighter is a process that is used in the dark room while developing film. With digital images the process while different is similar in nature. While I don’t use Photoshop to manipulate images I do use the features that emulate the tools used in a dark room.
