This weeks challenge was a lot of fun. I put together a bunch of stuff I found around the house and set them up in my basement. The first thing I tried was using a diffuser from a flourescent light and a piece of wrapping paper with purple flowers. I set up a 60 watt light behind the paper and brought the paper close enough to add colors and patterns without showing the actual design.
I decided that the color was too bland so I found a very colorful gift bag and put it behind the diffuser.
Then I found some packing bubble wrap and put it in front of the diffuser to add another pattern.
I decided to try something else with the bubble wrap so I got a piece of blue filter paper and some parts from an old dismantled lcd monitor. One of the lcd parts was a clear piece of plastic about half an inch thick that had little spots of something that changed from black to white as you viewed them from different angles. I found an angle where the spots were black on one side and white on the other side of the picture. I think it ended up creating an interesting pattern.
until next time –
