Rubbing paper off a porous surface with finger tips and slowly revealing the image is fun, and I love the result especially with photographs on water and reflections.
A neophyte with underwater photography, I am convinced that this is the art form in which I really want to develop myself more. These example photographs are from my first series called DEEP.
I keep fit by developing this kind of photographs in the sun on the rooftop that can be reached only by a steep and high ladder. Up and down according to exposure times!
