Back in 2005 (ugh -- that feels SO long ago), I started making up classes at the community schools to get to where I am today -- a successfully matriculated graduate student. One of the classes I had to take had to be in the art field, so I decided to take Photography I. Our first assignment was to create several photograms including transparent, translucent, and opaque objects. The photogram is created by placing a sheet of photo paper on the enlarger, placing your objects directly in or above the paper, and shining the light over the objects to expose the paper. Enjoy!

Hey. i love your work, i am doing this style for my A-Level work. and i was wondering how you do the sea effect on the photogram with a starfish in it? thanks hannah

Thanks Hannah! That sea effect happened by accident. I laid a decorative net over the shells. I expected to see more defined lines of the netting, but it made the neat effect that you see. Hope that this helps!

Hello, My name is Natalie. I'm a junior in Highschool and I am take photography as one of my electives,so far I'm enjoying it very much. Right now we are practicing get familiar with the enlarger and photograms in general. I'm really having great fun,I've liked the way most of it has turned out. Now we are nearing the end of our photograms and we have to write a report on a photogram artist. You were on the list so I chose you. And I must say,I have yet to be dissapointed. I've really enjoyed looking at your pieces. They're splendid!


I'm honored! If you have any questions or need any more information, please let me know. I'm a teacher, so I want you to do your very best! :)

Oh,Thank you! That's absolutely lovely. For my report My teacher doesn't require much. Just some general information and a photogram off your site.(That I will be sure credit) And someting like when you were born. If you are comfortable with that?

Name: Sherree Wolfgang
Born: 1979 (I hate admitting that I'm 30.)

I made these photograms in 2005- fall semester, Tunxis Community College, Farmington, CT.

I needed an art class to begin my masters program.

Anything else, let me know!

i am doing a photography A-level and i like your images, particularly the one with sweets in and the ship in a bottle. any tips on creating photogram compositions?


I don't know if I have any tips to offer. I guess I have a knack for composition. I probably tried to fill out the space (except for the leaf one that I used the negative space more).
