Outdoor Photography Exhibition
A little piece of Summer!
Now showing at Glen's Cafe, St Pauls Learning Centre, during opening hours, and also online in our Gallery section
We are pleased to present exciting new images created in a series of Outdoor Photography workshops that took place in allotments, parks, gardens and outdoor green spaces over the summer as we emerged from Lockdown no. 3.
Local community groups and members of the public were invited to participate in the workshops. We explored several alternative cameraless photographic techniques using the action of sunlight to create prints of leaves, flowers, grasses and natural items chosen by workshop participants in various outdoor locations in and around St Pauls, Ashley and Eastville.
Come and see examples of:
Turmeric Printing - light sensitive material made using turmeric coated onto paper to create a delightful yellow image which can then be toned in borax to turn it red.
Cyanotypes - iron based salts coated onto paper, exposed, then washed in water to create a beautiful blue print which can be intensified in hydrogen peroxide.
Lumens - prints on silver-based photographic paper which reacts in sunlight to create a range of subtle earthy colours.
Chemigrams - using developer made from coffee, vitamin C and washing soda to enhance the photographic image made on silver based photographic paper.
