"MOH equals Mohlerization. A technique I spend months working with. Essentially, the end product is created by taking a print, moistening it and engraving it somehow. I used color gradients to make it work. I take the engraving to the bond layer between the emulsion and paper, giving a goldish tone. If the paper is cut into, then the line is white. Different tools can be used to give different effects.
I used to take a slide of the finished print and then scan that. Now I can scan the print and put it into Photoshop.
I did that this time and then adjusted contrast.
This shot was taken when I was at anchor at Isla Mujeres, near Cancun. On the image, the lights from Cancun are form the central goldish effect. The overly contrasty and saturated image posted has different effects. I like the creativity of this method. It is like a cloisene (SP?) instead of a photo.
Hope you like the effect. I have several hundreds of these. The "MOH" process time to work varies. I have done it in 10 minutes and up to 8 hours at times. The more complex I don' t like as much as the simplier ones.
Shot in about 1990 probably with a Olympus IS3- no exposure data and they would be way off after all the processing done.
Comments appreciated. Obviously, this is not posted as shot.
I will have to search since it has been about 12 years since that shot was taken.
I do have another one I played with in "Hue"
Wierder. I might have overdone the colors with the framing????
One of the problems with the scan is that the sky is so grainy. I had to isolate it and then use gaussian blur. It does grab you, though.
I don't think most on NSN are prepared for this art form of shot and treatment, but you never know. I just like to do things a little different and this pleased me. ORiginally it was a hand done thing, but I think it can be done in PS now. I just need to get a graphics board.
