Within the Fine Art Pathway, we used the darkroom to create photograms. These showed our skills and knowledge with new techniues and also links to the Shadow Factory and the theme of light.

First I placed random objects onto the photo paper and then exposed it to the light for a few seconds. Then after turning the light off I soaked the paper in three s0lutions; one to reveal the photo, the second to secure the photo and the third was water to wash off any excess solution. Then the photos were hung to dry.

During this task, I found the equipment difficult to use at fitrst but after a few tries I understood how to get a good image and I was careful when carrying out the soaking of the photos.
