Photography: What Happened to the Plaster Image Transfers?

See the original post here for ‘how to’: Photography: Image Transfers onto Plaster Earlier this year I experimented with transferring some images onto plaster. I printed the images using a laser printer, coated them with acrylic gel, and transferred them onto a plaster surface. As planned, I kept them outside for the summer. They have…

Out and About: Salisbury Cathedral, Wiltshire

It was visiting Salisbury that originally convinced me that I could live without London; it really is a beautiful place. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve visited the cathedral over the years. Sometimes I’m there as a tourist to take photos, see the Magna Carta, eat in the cafe which spills out…

Photography: Experimental Self Portraits With Screens

I saw this on my computer screen when I had been doing some reading on identity and  researching the way text and image interact. For some reason it jumped out at me. I liked the idea of using a photograph of myself with this label attached: NO NAME. My name has changed several times over the…

Out and About: Highgate Cemetery, London

Highgate Cemetery website If you’re visiting London and you want to escape into a cool, green space while learning something interesting and being somewhere a bit different, Highgate Cemetery is the place to go. I’ve been twice so far. The first time it was a beautiful sunny day; in photography terms this meant a lot…

Out and About: Notre Dame, Paris

I’ve visited Notre Dame Cathedral three times. The first time I was about 15 years old, and living in a children’s home. We’d been taken on holiday as a group and spent a week in a children’s home in France, a few days at a campsite, and a few days skiing in Switzerland. I remember…

Photography: Image Transfers onto Plaster

Eventually, if you carry on reading this blog for any length of time, you will realise that I am an experimenter. I really like experimenting with my images, and images of myself in particular (after I’ve experimented with changing the way I look with wigs, clothes and make up, obviously). I’ve had an idea to…

Photography: Colour Film, Kingston Lacy Gardens

These images were taken with a Canon EOS 300 using Fuji colour film at Kingston Lacy NT in Wimborne, late summer 2018. This slideshow contains a mix of film scans and photo scans and so the quality is variable and you can see there are some white lines and haze in some of the images…

Photography: Rasterbator

You can find Rasterbator here. Rasterbator.net is a website that you can use to produce wall art from your photographs. It enlarges your uploaded image for you to print at home on whatever size paper/ printer combination you have. I have access to an A4 colour laser printer which is ideal for this.  You choose how…

Photography: Slide Film from London, 2001

These were taken on a Canon EOS 300 in about 2001, on cheap Boots Colour Slide film. They were scanned, quite a long time ago, on an Epson flatbed scanner. They scanned quite dark, but I’m guessing slide film would do that because they were meant to be backlit. These images represent some of my…
