I chose to experiment with the materials that were available to me from my film photography class to create a Photogram poster. Through the process of blocking and letting light touch photosensitive paper, I had to organize the elements in my poster, thinking about how the opacity and shape of the material might influence the way the paper was burned. I used a combination of cutout letters, printed copy, water dripped on a glass sheet, and an Iphone flashlight to create this final poster.
This article from Illuminated Negatives explains in further detail the process of photograms.
The above poster for the Photographers Lecture Series uses a grid based on the rule of thirds, a compositional tool that is commonly used and discussed in the world of photography.
