HK Trams

from a current project.

The diversity of effects possible with a single negative keeps me interested, though they'd drive a designer crazy. All these images were printed with an A4-size color negative, inverted in photoshop.

tottering tram
Printed on a scrap of Belgian linen
Some distortion due to the pliable fabric

organza tram
Tram on silk organza
The fabric shrank dramatically after being printed, so I was able to scan the entire image.

spooky tram somerset
Print on Somerset
More like my usual printing technique, on pure white cotton paper.

spooky tram
Tram on Arches cream
An experimental print onto off-white paper; I enjoy the richness, but for a series it's not ideal, as highlights are lost.

Happy new year to everyone, near & far.

The graphic novel/comic book atmosphere of the Arches cream and Silk organza are stunning.
I love all the comparisons.
The Arches seems to have the best movement while the silk shows the archetecture of it.
(Nope can't spell right now)
