Few will care

Few will care

While walking across the street from the Wiltern to the Wilshire/Western subway, this man walked between the cars asking for money. The print is pretty much how I envisioned it.

Unfortunately, I’m still trying to get more detail between the man’s head and the trees in the distance. This is probably my 8th print attempt. I’m scared that no amount of dodging will bring it out.

I would scan the negative, but I don’t have a film scanner. I’m not sure if I should save money towards buying a Canon CanoScan 8800F.

Like before, I tried to get this scanned print as close to the real thing as possible. I cropped out the white borders since they weren’t clean.

    Interesting image. Has a very gritty feel to it. I like the high contrast, but unfortunately like you mentioned his head kind of gets lost in the trees.

    A film scanner would be awesome to own…could the lab not scan the negatives for you?
    Seeing this reminds me fondly of my days learning in the lab – chemicals and all. Hands on is so fun.

    As always, good work Bryan. :)
