Chester Carlson Poster – Photocopy of a photocopy

Obviously inspired by the work of Andy Warhol. This is Chester Carlson (the guy who invented “electro photography” AKA the photocopy. I call it Photocopy of a Photocopy. I made this for the PrintEx11 poster competition.

postcard design

A postcard I designed to post out to friends and family. I decided to make the text “cheesy postcard style” which I enjoyed creating. I am also riding my bike wearing a dress that designed and sewed.

The secret with the text was the selection tool to get space inside the type and deleting the inverse from photographs. These shapes of photograph are in layers behind the black text. I also used the selection and expand options to apply a white edge on the inside and the outside of the text. This was the most time consuming part of the process.

This was a fun, simple project which only took me an hour from start to print!


light play photoshop

I just found this on one of my drives. This is taking one of the light play photographs and using layers in photoshop to make something interesting. I used this as a wallpaper.

old wallpapers

Putting this old wallpaper on here made me open the folder full of these old but still lovely wallpapers. These are all mostly made with photographs that I have taken or fractals I generated and multiple layers in photoshop.

The caption is the name of the wallpaper and also the foundation of what made it.

Seriously – these are the first ever photographs I have taken. I played around with film cameras a small amount growing up (2 rolls of film tops) but this Olympus digital camera was the first that was ever camera that was just mine to use. With Darwin being as beautiful as it is I went out and had lots of fun taking thousands of photographs. I spent most days chasing sunsets!


Trailers

Freelance photoshoot for a trailer hire depot.

Requirements: minimum 3 photographs of the depot (the premises, the stock, internal anything else) and one of the manager

The exact location of the depot is hard to determine as you approach it so the first photograph is of the road to get an idea of what you should see as you approach it.

All photographs taken on a Nikon D60, are manually exposed and unedited except the portrait of the manager (faux depth of field created in photoshop).
