People Of The Black Country ( Image Heavy)

Spent a few hours at the Black Country Living Museum yesterday, if you are in the area I can recommend it as a good interesting day out even though it put me through the mill with my present health problems but I was not going to let that stop me.

Way to many pics of various subjects to post, so thought I would just post the people pics for now. Sorry it is image heavy.

E-M10 and various prime lenses,PP LR5+Elements 12 processing to suit the period.

3 and 6 are great - quite like these sort of places because you don't feel as self conscious taking photos of people.

Our club went there in July, excellent day out. Some good images there Paul (mono works well), looks like there was more going on than when I was there. Recommended and pretty central to the southern half of the country.

I didn't know that Brian Blessed was a shop keeper!

A wonderful set, Paul, and rest assured that we can never have too many pictures from you.

Thank you Chevvy, I used to spend hours in the b&w darkroom in my film days printing for exhibitions and salons so what I learned served me well when I went digital.

Thank you Ed, my main health issue is on the mend but the long term high dose steroids for the eye problem are effecting my breathing, muscles and energy so I am now weaning myself of them as they seem to be doing more damage than good.

Re: People Of The Black Country ( Image Heavy)

Paul, I would love to know "more" about printing for exhibitions and salons ??? could you start a thread ? please.

Whilst I lurve your processing (especially as above) I feel "unconfident in my own" - sometimes I think "yes great, thats IT" and then printed I feel deflated .... sometimes inflated

I really would like to know about "the best and not best" and why? the differences ? to get "my eyes in" ?

Paul, make sure your doctor is aware of this, after long-term steroid use it is important that the dose is reduced in a controlled manner. Sorry to hear you are having yet more problems, you must be due some good luck soon!

Thanks John, and yes I was already on a reducing dose which was due to end in two weeks, I'm just reducing them a little more.
