Focus on - Burning Night
'Back on Black' Part of my negative body study series.
My next experiments focused on using negative burning to make a frame for a friend's birthday. She has just visited New York City and I thought a burning of the skyline at night would be a nice gift. This time the method I used was similar to my body studies but the technique was much, much simpler. So simple in fact that I thought even a novice burner would have a good shot at producing a very creditable nighttime cityscape.
The original cityscape negative burnt frame.
I promised one day I'd get around to teaching this technique. Well...it's taken a lot longer than I'd hoped, but I finally got there:) I managed to visit New York myself this year and decided to use the experience to create 'Burning Night'. I video taped the experience as it happened and I have put it together on a DVD called, 'Burning Night - the Art of Negative Burning'. It took me about 4 months longer than I'd hoped to put this DVD together. As alsways I was keen to edit the information so that the viewer receives maximum learning for their viewing.
