Black & White
My first rolls of film were black & white: I grew up processing and printing my own film and photos in a local community lab where I had free access to beautiful equipment and sage advice from the local expert, Milt Lam.
My first publishing project in black & white was a series of postcards for the Salt Spring Island market that I had printed in Vancouver. Prior to these, I had laboriously printed all of my postcards, cards & other prints by hand, one at a time in my darkroom.
These days my darkroom is destined to become a cold storage once more and my printing is done through the magical digital Lightroom and professional labs.
I miss the tangible process of printing by hand in a wet darkroom but I don't miss the chemicals or the adverse affect they could potentially have on my long-term health
