Blog has been a bit neglected of late but I am starting my first real project in quite a long time and thought this was probably the best place to put my thoughts, trials, failures, successes…

Anyway the project is a group of images for exhibition using my large format 4 x 5 Cambo camera which has also been sadly neglected sitting in its box in my garage for longer than I can remember.

The concept is to use cutouts (or gobos) to create shadows or highlights on portraits. This is done by using a snooted studio light so as to not spill too much light around the gobo.

To create a gobo I have been printing out images onto framing matte board and then cutting them out with a craft knife.

So far I have cutout a few gobos…

I plan to play around with both positive masks as well as negative masks so see which one will work best or possibly a mixture of both…
