First Digital Transfer!

March 21, 2014  •  3 Comments

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!

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:

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 :)
