Black & White Photography | Photograms

Black and White Photography students will soon be in the darkroom creating photograms. Photograms are created by setting objects with varying transparency on top of photographic paper and then exposing it to light. After developing the print, objects that are opaque block the light and leave the paper white, while the uncovered areas will turn black. 

In groups, students cut up examples of photograms and used small parts of each to create their own arrangement for a photogram. Some of the concepts we tried to show within our photograms were symmetry, line, shape, as well as creating a scene or object using other objects.
