Scene from an Apartment (liquid emulsion)

As if Monday’s aren’t crazy enough, right?

Sometimes being thick skulled is a good thing – like when… uh… what was it I was going to say again? My memory just isn’t what it used to be, and I have no idea why. Anyway, this is another image I made in one of my college photo classes. Good times! I think. From what I can remember of them, anyway.

About this image: Ilford 35mm film – printed with liquid emulsion on three 4″x6″ canvas panels .

  1. This one was fun to pose for, but I have to admit I was a little afraid I might fall over and pierce your skull with my heel! Glad we survived unmaimed!

    I really like the composition and contrast. It’s extra cool with the canvas texture too.

    Plus my foot looks sexy! 😛

    • I just wish I would have fixed that one panel a bit longer! And/or sized them better first so I didn’t have to worry about the emulsion sliding off – boo!

      It was a bit of a challenge jumping up off the floor, running to the camera and back, then getting reset before the timer went off! Talk about cardio! 🙂

        • Are we talking about the photo here or is there something else you would like to share?
          Blahahaaha, would have been interesting if you were wearing Hush Puppies, Annabelle…I love mixed message photos. Oooh and maybe you could have crushed his fingers a little too. I love the subtly of the wedding ring.

        • This was one of my favorite pieces from my photography classes, S.E…
          Unfortunately I was so worried about the emulsion sliding off the canvas I skimped a bit on the fixer… which was a very unfortunate decision, because the far right panel has started to deteriorate noticeably. Happily I have them scanned in at a very high resolution, anyway… so at least the ‘picture’ of the pictures is safe. And, of course I still have the negative… so if I ever find my way into a dark room again I guess I can always re-print.

    • It might have something to do with the temper-tantrums I’ve started throwing recently. I’m not above that sort of thing, you know. LALALA! LOOK AT ME! LALALA! 🙂

        • Annabelle looked at most of my cartoons before I posted them, too (which is probably closer to the real reason she comments more here).

          Hmmm… maybe your wife will comment someday, Bearman… maybe she will someday. 🙂

      • Reasons I comment more here: 1) I’m usually more involved with the production of the photos (since I’m often the model, or at least present when the photos are taken) so I feel like I have a better idea of what to say/contribute and 2) since I’m no longer teaching art I have a lot more time to enjoy things like this. I always intended to comment more on Spilled Ink and Sub Blot but then things just had a tendency to get away from me, and before I knew it a new one would be posted. But life is much improved since then so here I am! Commenting away! 😛

    • Honestly, my memory is so bad I have a fond feeling whenever I can remember… well… anything, really.

      Thank you, sir – I appreciate that very much! 🙂

    • Sometimes I’ll surf around looking at other people’s work, and I was very impressed by your blog – amazing stuff!

      Thank you very much, D.F. – that is very kind of you! 🙂
