Glass Negatives Processing

In my ongoing pursuit of working these glass plate negatives, I thought I would share another success with all of you.

This is the negative as shot from my camera.

[[posterous-content:pid___0]]This is the image after manually converting it from the negative to the positive image using the tone curve to to fine tune the highlights and shadows. There has been no post processing done at this point.


This is image after the black and white conversion to get rid of color cast and finish the fine tuning of the white and black levels. Also included is repairing the damaged areas of the photograph.

[[posterous-content:pid___2]]Lastly, based on a recommendation from a reader, I added a split tone effect, a sort of warm/cool sepia to the image.

[[posterous-content:pid___3]]Total time from set up of shot to publishing post processed image, 1.5 hours.
