Guilin - Infrared City

Guilin 5/18/91

Over the couple of weeks I have been looking back at negatives that I have never printed before mainly because the exposures were so far off that my darkroom capabilities were not simply up to the task of printing them. Consequently I never knew what these frames contained until I began my scanning lessons.

Guilin - Infrared Dress


When you only have 12 exposures on a roll of film, where an image falls into the sequence of shots is critical. The beginning of a roll will allow for a little breathing room. This was the last shot.

Guilin - Infrared Photograph

Guilin. 5/18/91
The first or second day in Guilin. Konica Infrared 120 was a tough film for me to shoot as it seemed to have a very narrow range of acceptable exposure. On a roll of this IR film, I'm lucky if half the shots have any detail as I lost a lot to underexposure. The scanner is saving me again.

I'm trying to figure out this shot. I don't remember taking it or where i was. What likely happened is that i saw this while walking and only one shot was taken and forgotten.

Guilin - Big Fish

Guilin 5/16/91
What's the story behind this fish? I don't really know as I only took one shot and that doesn't leave me much context to figure out why this shot happened. Google fish in Guilin and of course you'll come up with cormorants swallowing fish. It would take a cormorant the size of a house to swallow this one.

Guilin - Two Photographs

Guilin. 5-18-91
Two shots taken minutes apart, perhaps less.
The girl was sticking leaves onto her dress. She may have been pretending to be a tree, I was pretending to be a photographer in a landscape that overwhelmed me.
