Project Title: Still Life in Monochrome

In this project, I explored the portrayal of monochromatic still life photography, examining the differing ways to adjust and manipulate a photograph through compositional techniques.

I had a diverse set of inspiration from the photographers I chose, allowing me to experiment broadly within the darkroom as well as at home, with various mediums and objects. I looked thoroughly at shadow, lighting, placement, texture and detail, identifying how to assemble an image appropriately with my given objects.

I then went on to produce two distinct final images, done in two different styles, all depicting the techniques accumulated within the entire investigation.
