Radeka Photography
Hotel Interior, Bannack, Montana. Limited edition black and white photograph

Hotel Interior, 1991. Bannack, Montana

I took refuge from a passing thunderstorm inside this empty hotel building in the ghost town of Bannack, Montana. The light filtering in through the windows was soft yet somber, and it seemed to enhance the ghostly emptiness of this interior. I used a Schneider 121 mm Super Angulon lens on my 4x5 camera and exposed Tri-X film to achieve a good full scale negative with lower contrast development. The key to this print is a careful balancing of values. A Shadow Contrast Increase Mask was used to subtly enhance the railing and the door trim.
