9 Spheres.

The outcome of the small printing, 5cm circles, resulted in a collection of 9 Spheres. The choice of paper was a big factor with these images as before I was using an art paper which had beautiful texture but not enough power in the whites and blacks. Thus the images were very flat and unappealing. However the photographs above on Ilford Matt Paper really pop the blacks and shine the whites exactly how I wanted them too.

I have never been one for collections of work going in to the same frame but I found that this set of work might really bounce off each other if they were placed in one frame together as a set of 9. Cutting the mounts would be a bit of a struggle ( I will be ordering them from a professional) but i think that given they are all of the same subject, size and connect well, it would seem silly to now place them together.

When printing darkroom you really do have to think about the paper and chemicals constantly. One bad batch of developer can ruin a set of photographs and a different type of paper can produce so many different contrasting ideas. I am pleased with the results on the Ilford Matt Paper (right) compared to the Kentmere Art Document.(left)
