Photograms: Objects place over a sheet of photo paper and and then the paper is exposed. The blocked area then creates the form of the object placed on the paper and create the images shown.
Fast shutter speed is used to capture an image in motion. Image in f5.6 and shutter at 1600
Slow shutter speed combined with panning the camera can achieve to capture a blur in motion.
Shallow depth of field: Background is blurry while main object is in focus.
Deep depth of field: Everything is in focus.
Storytelling: We took 5 polaroid pictures to create a story, we needed to have detailed pictures to be able to tell the premise of out stories without a major use of captions.
Loading film into canister: This needs to be done in pure darkness in order for the film to be processed in the sink. Light that touches the film ruins the pictures on the film.
Negatives in sleeves: After processing the film and drying the film, we need to cut up the pictures and put them into sleeves to keep the film safe.
D-76: This is the first step in what you need to do to process the film or pictures that you make. Keep the film in this for about 5-8 minutes.
Fixer: After stop bath, the fixer is needed. This step is needed for about 3-5 minutes and cannot be poured down the sink.
Grain Focuser: The grain focuser is needed to focus the pictures from the film before they are going to be developed on the photo paper.
Enlargers: Enlargers are used to make the photos on the film bigger in order to print the image on the photo paper.
Burning and Dodging Tools: Burning tools are to fix your image by making the darks darker. Dodging tools are used to do the opposite, making the pictures brighter.
Tacking Iron (Dry Mount): Tacking iron is used to place your photo onto the board that you are going to use. Then you place the board and picture into the dry mount, which makes sure that the picture stays on the board.
Filter Paper: Placed in the enlarger to help with the picture's exposure.
Developer: 90 seconds. Stop Bath: 30 seconds. Fixer: 3-5 Minutes. Wash: 3 minutes.
Squeegee: Used to take off all excess water of your print. Could create streaks on the print.
Speed Easel: The speed easel is used to give a better view of the film in the enlarger. Also gives you a better place to put your photo paper.
Changing Room: This is where the film is supposed to be changed from its container into the canister. The room is completely dark and cannot be opened until he person is done changing the film.
Dryer: After developing the film, because the film is wet it needs to be placed in the dryer for it to be able to be used efficiently.
