Boston. Trucks. What’s not to like? I’m standing on the center strip of Seaport Blvd facing the city on a beautiful summer’s day a couple of years ago.
Yes, a beautiful summer’s day.
The development of this image was just beginning after the first click.
I’d put it through black and white filters, HD settings, all of which never struck me as bringing out the potential of the image.
Now, fast forward to today. I’m continuing to explore the possibilities of encaustic photography. I printed out the HD image as well but decided to use the black and white image to use in a photo transfer.
These are the stages I took it through. I am beginning to think that photo transfers to me are what polaroid transfers once were: lifting the emulsion from the backing, in heated water, and lifting the wrinkly image out of the pan with a spatula.
Yeah, I probably didn’t do that process correctly either.
