Extreme Darkroom Tricks

The photo above was shot from the base of the structure with the camera tilted up. This causes the vertical lines to converge towards the top of the negative. Perspective correction, or 'keystone' correction, was done during printing by tilting the baseboard under the enlarger. This is a normal darkroom trick, a small aperture is used to keep all of the print in focus. However is this case the tilt of the board was extreme, about 45º. I used the enlarger lens stopped down to f32 and remarkable the print was in focus. This was a 18cm x 18cm print. I am curious if this will work at a larger size!

Above, the same structure photographed from the hill with the camera set horizontal.

Above, more animal remains in another part of the building complex.
