I had my final critique for two of my photography classes and I figured its been a while since I made any sort of video, so I made this really neat time-lapse of matting my prints for one of the classes. Its hard to explain to my friends/family how much work goes into making these prints, and this sort of explains 1/8th of it (the matting portion, at least..).
These photographs were captured with a 4x5 view camera using TRI-X 400 film sheets and then printed on Ilford Semi-Matte Warmtone fiber paper. It was my first time doing studio-like portraits (prior to taking my studio class, as well). I chose this subject because I had never done portraits to this level of attention. I instructed the models to simply look at the camera. I wanted to explore working with a live model but more importantly getting used to the view camera's various functions.
The photo I am most proud of from this project is the first image.
Note: The image is not a scan, just a picture of a picture, so there is a lot of unusual glare.
