Black Cross, 1978. Los Trampas, New
This is one of the many photogenic churches in the state
of New Mexico. The negative was cropped severely when making this print
in an effort to maximize the shapes and forms. A special, localized
SCIM mask and the precision pin-registration carrier system was used to enhance the intensity of the cross (which is in
shadow) to create stark contrast with the other shapes and
values. The adobe wall in the foreground required careful printing, including the judicious use of a fog mask, to soften it's values and enhance the tactile feel of the adobe.
The negative was 4x5 Tri-X developed normally in HC-110.
