Photograms


Over the course of the two days I spent in the darkroom, I went through many different trials to make photograms. Although not all of them turned out the way I had expected, I learned some valuable lessons about the darkroom. The first thing I learned was that if you place transparent objects on your work, it will create many different shades of gray, instead of having just blacks and whites from solid objects. In addition to that, I learned that simple photograms are not always as interesting as more filled photograms, that have more objects on its surface. It creates a more engaged, full piece of art. The final lesson I learned from working in the darkroom was how important it was to be detail oriented, from keeping exact track of time to making sure your lighting is correct. After doing it many times, I learned that the time you have the photograms in the light changes how light your light are and how dark your darks are.
