Lauren Stewart Prepares For Halloween

Lauren Stewart — Photograph Alex Waterhouse-Hayward

I took this photograph of my granddaughter Lauren, 13, on October 25, 2015. I used a Mamiya RB-67 Pro SD with a 90mm lens. The film was Fuji FP-3000B Instant Black & White Film (ISO 3200) that is now sadly discontinued. While this film provides me with a clear and crisp print approximately 3 by 3 inches, what you see here is the peeled “negative” which I quickly dry with a hair dryer. I then scan the peel and reverse it in Photoshop. I increase the contrast and shadow detail.
