Some solarizing fun on a Sunday evening

By Dirk Dom

Hi!

Just doodling a bit with some shots I’ve got.

Some thirty years ago, I was fascinated with pseudo solarisation. I exposed and souped hundreds of pieces of paper and went to great lengths to try to standardize the Sabattier effect. I guess just about any photographer did that in those days.

I managed one 24 inch print about once every six weeks, after many, many hours of work. I even tried Agfacontour and Cibachrome to make color solarisations. That was hellish and expensive like you wouldn’t believe it!!!

Now, look what I did in Photoshop in about five minutes:
