Pinhole Photograph sepia & blue toner

There is an infinite amount of experimentation to be had when using chemical processes.
Different films, papers and chemistry give a huge variety of effects when creating an image, as does building your own pinhole camera or using none at all, in the case of photograms.
I particularly enjoy using Infrared film, Pinhole cameras, Photograms , Lith chemicals, Bromoil and Mordancage.
Some processes are mastered fairly quickly while others take a lot of practice before making even a satisfactory image.
Traditional darkroom photography has still many unique qualities to offer, alongside its digital counterpart. There are increasing numbers of people embracing both analogue and digital photography, using whichever medium is most appropriate for the task in hand.
