A photogram is a photographic image made without a camera by placing objects directly onto the surface of a light-sensitive material such as photographic paper and then exposing it to light. Last weekend we had two extended dark room sessions – of course we had to do some “photogramic experiments”.

We pulled more then 100 small sheets of ADOX Easy Print 311 through our chemistry from ILLFORD.

Let me give you some more impressions:

Comparing the ADOX Easy Print 311 and the ADOX MCP 312 I prefer the MCP 312. It needs more light then the Easy Print but has more information in the shadows for sure. Except the need for more light I didn’t find it more difficult to work with then the Easy Print 311. I might try using the Easy Print, when I want to have a more contrasty image.

If you want to get creative without a camera, bring some items to make a photogram or help developing some roll of films or turning some negatives to positives!

As you see, the models start repeating so if you have ideas about motives or want to get shot yourself, stop by CYBAR, join the POWWOW Club. And make sure, to check our other posts about the Analog Workshop idea.
