Darkroom Experiments: My Photograms

Last October just gone, during the course of the Light Play Project, I did some darkroom experiments, as this was my first time using darkroom materials, considering I had never done this before.

As you can imagine, for me, this was a difficult process to start with, considering I had never done this before, but after spending some time developing my skills with the darkroom, that’s including getting used to being in near-dark conditions, especially as the lights would be switched to red, which is useful for producing black and white prints, with that being said, I was able to produce my first ever set of photograms on this course.

I must admit, it was difficult to start with, but after I got used to working in the darkroom, I really enjoyed developing my darkroom experiment skills.

Below are the set of photograms that I produced at college last October. Please keep in mind that I edited a few of them in Adobe Photoshop as it was a part of my coursework for the Light Play Project, which connects to the UAL Level 3 Diploma Film & Photography Course that I’m on at Croydon College.

I wanted to showcase the work I’ve done at college on here for you all to see, as I felt that it was right to show you all my creativity of what I did for my course, which also brings good news. Just a few short weeks ago, I was given the result for the first four units of my course, and I’m pleased to say that I have officially passed the first four units of the first year of my two-year UAL Level 3 Diploma Film & Photography Course.

Please feel free to feedback what you thought of my first photogram darkroom experiment pieces. This is my first time experimenting with darkroom work. Your feedback is much appreciated ☺.
