Years ago, before the digital age, we would look at a film negative as a thing of beauty, anticipating the print results of the final image. In my mind, the negative was the art and the print was confirmation of it.
I have tried to digitally duplicate how this black and white negative would have appeared before going into the darkroom.
Of course using a beautiful model always helps in the final output.
