I worked in the Dark room with my good friend Caroline and with the help of her and many people I was able to learn and produce my own analog images in the dark room. I think having that knowledge helps a ton to see the differences between digital and non. It give’s me another layer of what I’m doing digitally in Photoshop and to appreciate analog photography. It’s a lost art.
In this space Caroline and I met a fellow artist by the name of Shawheen Keyani. He was a major help in guiding us in the dark room. I learned some dodging and burning techniques with his aid. Contrast properties, using the enlarger machine, and using the dark room developer efficiently.
My professors were a major guidance in teaching me Photoshop and design. I was taught the importance of a clean workspace, how to retouch, mask, sizing your images properly for printing, curve/level tools, layering, lasso tool, making Gifs, typography and many important basics in Photoshop. Very grateful for being mentored by them.
As of now I have a Panasonic G7 and ready to experiment and continue my film/photo journey. Excited for new claymations and landscape photography. Stay tune…
