a while back i bought a bunch of Ilford Direct Positive paper. This is photo paper that you can load into a large format camera and shoot just like film, however when you process it, you do so in traditional black and white paper chemistry and the result is a positive image instead of a negative image. this was the first time i’d used it with a live model and at first i wasn’t terribly impressed with the results. the photos looked horribly underexposed. but after looking at them again, i see them as simply low-key and actually find them quite compelling. i hope you do too.
