More Darkroom

Today I cut down the acetate negatives smaller so I could put them into the negative carrier, so it would enlarge the the texture of the print. I also printed out another picture, which messed up in the printer, but I like the effect it creates.



I've finally got around to getting in the darkroom today, and it went really well. I didn't have anything in mind, just some text and images that I printed out on acetate and some stencils I had cut from card. Next step is to have a plan for what I am going to do. I've also got myself a Canon 500d, so I will be indulging in some photography.



We have been given a project to produce our own manifesto, about our aims and values in our design, and create 3-5 posters based on our manifesto. Here is my first draft, it needs tweaking, I need to add to it, and reword some parts. The manifesto is titled WWMD (what would mark do?) I didn't want to go for anything too pretentious, and I didn't want it to sound like a list of rules for people to follow.

I've finally come up with an idea I actually like for my posters. I want to create it in a darkroom, but its too late now, so I'm going to have to produce them digitally for the crit tomorrow, which is really annoying, but I can't do anything about it now. Hopefully get in the darkroom at the weekend.
