Burn in Photo I created
This is the stencil that I created so you get an idea of what I'm talking about, I designed it to be backwards so I could just lay it on top of the already exposed photo paper and the letters would come out in the correct order and not backwards. I think it worked our really well since the only part that was exposed whas the white areas and kept the rest of the background photo intact.
Ever since watching the documentary "Exit Through the Gift Shop", I have been infatuated with Street Art. I've always like graffiti but the street art shows a side that people don't always get to experience. Yes I do know that vandalism is a crime and don't reccomend or encourage it. This is my "safe" version of street art/ graffiti.
The location of the wall is actually at Coconut Point Mall in Estero, FL. It is behind the store called GQ'z or Men's Palace. If you go there you will see that this stencil isn't there or any signs of being painted over in case you don't believe me.
I have some more photos that I attempted with the burning and dodging techniques that I will attempt to place later on during the month. I found making these type of photos to be rather difficult and exciting to do since I was working with film photography and didn't use photoshop or any other type of editing software to creat the photos. If I could ever get back into a film studio I would do more of things like this.
