Experimental Techniques

In my Spring Semester of 2018 at Columbia College I took a class call that reached my core creatively: Experimental Techniques. We learned three processes where we had to apply photographic emulsion to a surface which included: Cyanotypes, Van Dyke Brown and Rollei emulsion (for tin types and other surfaces). It felt so great to be back in the darkroom working again. I get lost in process and transformation of the unknown in the darkroom. These images are a look into my final project for the class. For me, the things that I love most are the mistakes and imperfections that are unique on their own. This collection of images are some of my personal favorite nature photography and disc golf shots from over the years, all of the images were originally taken using a digital camera and I created the negatives through Photoshop and printed them on transparent film.
