Before There Was Photoshop

I’ve often talked on my blog about how, after historically shooting and processing black and white film, I know that many of the tools you get in Photoshop replicate things you can actually do in the darkroom. I even posted a while back about how the Victorians used to produce weird and wacky images with just darkroom techniques.

Now, in order to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Adobe Photoshop, the well known training site Lynda.com has produced various resources looking at its development over the years.

One I found very interesting is the video below where Konrad Eek develops some B&S images in a darkroom comparing what he’s doing to the tools available in Photoshop.
