This picture is a gift for my wife. I took and processed this picture using only film and traditional darkroom techniques. There was no digital manipulation other than resizing after it was scanned.

I used a 4x5 large format camera with Ilford FP4+ black and white film. This was a 1:1 macro shot, so the image is represented at life size on film. I developed the film, then after it dried I enlarged it to 11x14 inches onto exhibition grade fiber paper (making the subject approximately 3 times its real life size). I developed the paper, then toned it in a solution of ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferrocyanide. This replaces the silver with blue iron salts.

Below the photo you can see my setup to take the shot.

Excellent shot - thanks for the info about how you did it as well - It's good to see film still being used, especially large format sheets of the stuff!

Thanks, all, I'm glad you all like it. Definitely a different mindset with this camera -- every shot is a project!
