Photograms

What is a Photogram?

A photogram is a photographic image made without a camera. which is created in a photographic dark room. I placed the flowers on top of Light sensitive papper and then shined a light on-to the paper for 4 seconds. the paper is then placed into chemicals to make the image appear and to make it no longer sensitive to light.

and this is the end result

I have now started my final project in foundation art. For my Final project I am woking with nature as a subject.

here I have created Photograms and this is one of my favourite forms of photography as it is so simple but yet it creates a stunning interesting image and I love the developing process.

As my current subject is nature I have worked with flowers. I like the effect the flowers petals have created as the light has leaked through them.

Blaenau Ffestiniog

I lived in Blaenau ffestiniog in the summer of 2016 for work. I actually thought the town was quit boring apart from the Zip World site and the Down hill biking centre. it constantly rains in Blaenau ffestiniog,  so it always looks quite gloomy there apart from when it snows and all the slate is covered in beautiful white powder.

I now do not live in Blaenau ffestiniog and I had always seen some beautiful images of the mountain and some beautiful walks that are in Blaenau ffestiniog. I went back to visit the town to take some photographs for my next college project and I was taken up into the queries in Tan-y-Grisiau where I found this beautiful landscape and  old slate buildings. I did not get to spend much time taking images up there but I cant wait to go back and visit and take some more photographs (maybe in some better weather)

Cardiff

I have Visited Cardiff quite a lot recently and haven’t had the time to post my pictures from my travels.

Cardiff is one of my most favourite places to visit but unfortunately I never take the time to snap away and focus on the little important things I see that would make a good photography.

Next time I visit the City I plan to take a lot more images and capture the beauty I see.
