Rain Drenched

The rain came--a deluge!  After the storm, the tulips were still standing and raindrops were everywhere creating a glistening fairyland.

Digital Bromoil--My Name for the Process

Digital Bromoil is the name I call the process of creating images similar to traditional bromoil images.  I coined this term several years ago and am mentioning this fact because a visitor to my blog is planning to research this term and I don't know where she will find it mentioned other than here.  This process is, as far as I know, mine and mine alone.

Creating this look fascinated me several years ago and I drifted away (temporarily) from pursuing it.  Now I'm back at it and will share how it is done once I have the steps documented.   The problem with formulas is they are stiff without room for play.  Anyone visiting this blog knows how much I love to play with images.  Anyway, for anyone who is curious, I am working on the process and will share as soon as I can.  So......................Stay tuned for more information.....

Working with Digital Bromoil Again

Years ago, I worked with "digital" bromoil process and met with a lot of flack.  In spite of that, I am back at it  and have been playing with some tulip images taken yesterday.

A Surprise

I love it when I am experimenting and am pleasantly surprised.  Used my Sigma 150-500 lens and had a wonderful time in the garden this morning.

Years ago, when our blogs were on AOL Journals, I developed a process which I called digital bromoil (not grunge).  This morning I decided to start developing an image using that process again.   Below is step one.
