Im not sure where this is meant to go so I hope this is the right place. I just thought I might let people have a look at what I've been doing in my photography classes.

A photogram is a photographic image made (without a camera) by placing objects directly onto the surface of a photo-sensitive material such as photographic paper and then exposing it to light.

This one below is made up of objects from my room, and i also used acetate (see-through paper type thing) and wrote my name on it with permanent ink, but as you can see that wasnt very effective:


The next one is simply made up of magazine pages which i'd cut up and you are able to see both sides of the paper as the light shines through it:


& the third one didnt go quite as i expected it to. I exposed it to light twice (double-exposure), the first time with the necklace, buttons and beads and the second time I took away those and placed my water bottle where the beads had been. If you look closely you can see the outline of the bottle and on the white beads you can see the writing from the label of the bottle:

Yeah it's really cool :D the most fun thing to do is bumbling around in the DarkRoom (a dark room where you develop the pictures and such where no light apart from red light is allowed otherwise it exposes your pictures when you dont want them to be exposed). We havent got proper red lights at the moment, so we're just using a tiny red lamp and some tiny red torches ... :P
