This image was part of an exploration of many photographic processes, combining both digital and alternative methods. The base image is a high resolution digital scan of a characterized self-portrait made on a 4”x5” Wet Plate Collodion Tintype. The scan was printed at 4”x5” on Pictorico to create a digital negative and used in an enlarger. The process of Cliché verre was also used by first putting a feather into the enlarger and exposing the feather’s silhouette to the paper. The Tintype scan was then printed over the previously exposed feather silhouette.
This image was made by creating a photo-gram and then printing an image on top of it. It was a part of an exploration of alternative photographic processes in the darkroom. A black feather was placed over the paper and exposed under an enlarger. A 4″x”5 negative was then exposed to the same paper, causing the ‘bearded lady’ to appear only through the feather-window left by the first exposure.
