This ethereal image from off the coast of Croatia was made by Marko with his custom made camera. His panoramic camera has a curved film plane which holds a 3.5″x10″ paper negative in perfect position to avoid distortions from the wide format. Marko uses graded fiber based paper, providing for superior paper negatives due to higher silver density and contrast control. A final duotone touch finishes the image nicely.
The editors at ƒ/D were taken with this image because of it’s attention to delicate detail. The photo is also an excellent example of using duotone for mood treatment.
