Black & White photography

These photos are something of a return to my roots. It's been nearly four decades since I had my own darkroom (actually a converted half-bathroom) where I used to spend hours coaxing black & white prints out of ever-changing combinations of Microdol-X developer, Agfa printing papers, and selenium toners.

Now, using PhotoShop, I'm trying to recreate some of those B&W image tones. The following digital images have been 'processed' using a variety of tools and filters including de-saturating, gray scale conversion, channel mixer, and duotone and tritones.
