Chloe, our 5 year old granddaughter, came in from the garage clutching a little box, filled with interesting little flat plate-like things, asking Janette if it was ok to play with them. It wasn’t! It was a box of Kodachrome slide ‘positives’ shot in 1990. In those days I was still making photographs with the Nikon FM2, no autofocus, no programmes, no auto-exposure, just a classy camera that gave the photographer complete control over the image.
So I took the slides, scanned them with the Epson Perfection V500 photo-scanner, imported them to Photoshop, and of course, unsaturated them to make some nice black and white images. This selection of them is a panel of shots I made in Co. Cork, when we were on holiday there in 1990.
Some ‘sepia’ type effects applied in three of them, to create a ‘vintage’ look.
