For this weeks shadow shot I dug in my photo stash from my photography classes from about 6-7 years ago. This was one of my first assignments. We had to take a photo of something, then figure out ways to alter the photo in different ways. The original photo is above.
No photoshop her folks, all printed in a darkroom (I miss it sooo much!) with some hand-altered goodness.
For this second one (which I LOVE because it looks like it has shadows from palm trees!) the developer was brushed on loosely. So cool!
The one above was bleached. I love how soft and faded it is.
For this forth one I used oil paint that's specifically for photos to color it. There were no brushes so I had to paint it with cotton swabs.
And the last one that I'm showing you from this assignment shows that my love of collage was already creeping in at that point. To do this I printed the photo twice. One in black and white and one in sepia. Then I tore the black and white one and glued pieces of it onto the sepia and folded the edges over a bit here and there.
I have many more versions of this photo, but these are my favorites.
