Shadows

10th Image in my Portfolio


We were assigned to photograph Shadows too. This is a shadow of a lamp. Like I said earlier I was going to put up an error image. Obviously the image on the left is the error....and the one on the right is the right print.

What happened here: After running a test strip and knowing how many secs to exposure this, I set my paper and expsosed this for 35secs, while the Timer was ticking I quickly left my station to dry my other print outside the darkroom and when I got back I forgot and exposed it again for another 35secs (70secs in total)....I was trying to do 2 things at the same time, and that confused me. So while the clock was ticking I realized...Oh S%$@ ... I had already exposed it, but they was no time to print cos class was over...so I put the paper in my drawer, packed up and left. The next day, I was a little confused about the previous day, so inorder to avoid stress i decided to print another image...brought out a fresh paper...put it in the drawer again, so it doesn't get exposed to light (if not image goes totally dark..as some of us know)while i focus the image and set enlarge, run test strips and all (25secs exposure was best for the image). So now I open the drawer and I see 2 plain papers...I didn't know which was which ...now more confused....so I picked one and and exposed the image on the paper...Now when I got to the developer, as I submerged the paper and chemicals travel across the surface.....what you see on the left was what I saw...The image over the shadow was what I was trying to print (Another MoMA exhibition). LOL.....everyone in class thought it was creative...a mistake turned out to be something interesting. LOL....So finally I made the print of the shadow...what you see on the right...Thats how it's supposed to be. The other print of the MoMA exhibition...I didn't even bother cos i had wasted enuff paper...LOL! 

Error frame :Canon EOS K2, 35mm Film - Fuji Neopan 400, Filter 2 , f.8, 70secs (Double exposure). Another  25secs exposure of another Image (Test Strip 10secs each)

This frame (On Right) :Canon EOS K2, 35mm Film - Fuji Neopan 400, Filter 2 , f.8, 35secs. (Test Strip 10secs each)

I don't know if you planned it but the line in the sidewalk running with the the shadow is a nice lead in. And I am a big fan of diagonal lines smile

Ditto Michael's comment, Nacha! Shadows add so much to pictures. Yours works very well in the photo on the right.
You know i must admit your mistake image is really quite appealing. I do like them both but i will say for me the LEFT one is the WINNER! Its a winner in all respects of learning lessons of trying to do too many things at once.

Reading what happened was a riot, NaCha. I'd be so stressed out I'd probably give up film photography altogether. grin

Left one is very strong!
The lines and shadows really add to the pic.

Stop fumbling in the darkroom and go Digital...so much more fun ;-)
I never regretted the step...

Wow, that's quite the darkroom epic! Sometimes you discover cool things through errors, though. I really love the way the shadow looks like it's burnt right into the pavement.

imho, both images are intriguing in their own ways, although i find the one on the right more focussed. the one on the left has quite a bit of character!.... your "mistake" has worked out for the better! smile

Shadows are a great subject, love the lines and light in the picture on the right. At first I was confused about the picture on the left, but after reading your comment ... smile)) I like the mistake!

A lot of work you've been doing, and these have been interesting to explore with you. I like to hear about your experience in the class.
Strange image, as an UFO on this black world...
