ART 295 Alternative Processes
Silver Prints; 8 x 12, 16 x 20
This semester I focused on using different printing methods in the dark room. I brought in foreign objects to expose (photogram) my paper, and then double exposed the paper again to fill in the remaining white space. My favorite ended up being a thin net; creating lots of texture and depth in the images.
I also, got to experience Mordancage. Another one of my favorite alternative processes. With the image of the girl on deck, I did a double exposure at night. First shot was long exposure f16 for 5 minutes on TMAX 100 film. Second exposure was with a strobe to light the girl so I wouldn’t get any motion blur in my image. After printing in dark room, I treated the print with Mordancage. I ended up liking how it looked wet, so I hurried and did a copystand photo of the image to document the bubbles that the Mordancage created.
