First Digital Transfer!
It's been a fun and creative week! My first run doing a digital transfer onto metal was a success!
I love processes where the results vary...I guess it's my form of gambling!
Here's a few snaps of my classmates in the midst of the process:
Dipping into the sauce.DASS Supersauce is used for this process. Applying the image.An image printed on transfer film is being applied to the treated surface. Transfer complete!After 3-4 minutes the solution has released the image from the transfer sheet and onto the receiving material!
I played a bit in the darkroom as well, using the Sabatier Effect to give a new dimension to a portrait I took of Chris on 35mm black and white film:
Chris March 2014Silver Gelatin 8"x10" Chris Sabatier, 2014.The Sabatier Effect causes the highlights to go dark which creates a positive/negative look. Chris Sabatier/PhotogramMade by exposing the photo, adding shapes and re-exposing, then adding the Sabatier effect during development.
The photogram technique was used in the last photo to add the shapes!
Here's another photogram made with shapes cut out from pages of a book.
The portrait below was taken by my friend Mohammed, but when I saw it I knew I wanted to try the Sabatier effect with it!
Mohammed was kind enough to let me borrow the negative :)
