I’ve been researching three different photographers for the ‘Homage’ project. They are:
– Karl Blossfeldt
– John Aldus
– David Bailey
Not sure which of them I’ll choose for the actual project. Problem being that I am inspired by all three of them for different aspects of my photography.
I am however, reasonably sure on how I want to process the images.
If I choose Bailey, I want to produce a series of images using the Infra-Red camera that I bought. They final prints will be on paper.
For Blossfeldt and Aldus, I am considering producing the final images on glass using the Collodion Process. I don’t know if we able to do that at college though!
If we are… my idea is as follows:
- Take the photographs digitally
- Produce a B&W negative from the digital file by printing on ‘contact film’
- Coat the glass with Collodion – Let it dry of course
- Place contact film over the glass
- Flash expose
Well, that’s the plan anyway.
Will take some experimenting to get it right!
