You may be aware that The Art of Black & White film photography today continues in much the same manner as it did when created more than 150 years ago. My Grandfather, my Dad, and my Uncle were very active during the 1930’s and 1940’s. All that they had to work with then was not far removed from those who preceded them. Back then, all photography work was based on the use of film and all the practices involved with it. The industry was “built” around Black & White photography since color film had just started to emerge as an alternative.

Certainly the film, chemicals, paper, cameras and the darkroom equipment have been vastly improved since the early 1800’s but the process itself has pretty much remained the same.

Film is inserted into a camera, exposed on a subject of some kind and then removed. In the complete darkness of a darkroom, the film is processed into negatives. Any additional light in the darkroom would add more exposure to the film. This would damage the exposure of the original subjects photographed. The negatives are then used to produce the “positive” which is the actual Black & White photograph.

The process involves immersing the photo paper in a developer solution which begins to show the “positive”. Then at the right time, the photographer removes the paper and puts it into a “stop” solution. This does as its name implies and stops the developer from further darkening the photo. Next is a fixer solution which locks and finalizes the entire process and makes the photograph available to view under any light.

The final step is to properly treat and wash the photograph so that there are no damaging chemicals remaining in/on the image. This, very briefly, is how we produce your Fine Art Black and White Photograph so that you may enjoy your investment for years to come.

Each Fine Art Print is produced using the highest quality materials available today. As a darkroom photographer, I prefer to use Ilford film, chemicals, and paper which enhance my printmaking process. Crescent acid free mats, used in both the 11 x 14 and 8 x 10 sizes, complete the entire Fine Art presentation. This combination assures you years of lasting enjoyment. All of these products are readily available and consistent in their quality, a very important aspect to our production demands.

Your Fine Art Print uses our unique black background mounting for the 11x14 prints (see "B&W Mat Samples" above). The image is then surrounded by a hand drawn India ink accent line. This line lends to the illusion of your print suspended within the presentation. Your print arrives ready to frame. We suggest that you might use black metal frames such as Nielsen Profile 5 or 15. Retail stores like Hobby Lobby and Michael's should have this type of molding readily available. Black wooden frames, of course, might be more attractive to you based on your personal decor.

Your Fine Art Print will enhance any area where you choose to display it. It will add culture and depth to the entire space. Your print is large enough to attract interest yet just the right size to grace any wall either in your home or in your office.
