I remember when making black and white prints in the darkroom, I would use my hands in different shapes to manipulate the image as it is projected from the enlarger to the paper in order to lighten and darken different areas of the image. Then, I would use different developers and papers to achieve the tone and style that I was going for. The final print was truly hand-made.
Now in the digital era, my hands control a keyboard and a pen to darken and lighten. In addition, there are a wonderful array of techniques that are possible today that I could have only dreamed about back then.
