Dodging and burning are terms used in photography for a technique used during the printing process to manipulate the exposure of a selected area(s) on a photographic print, deviating from the rest of the image's exposure. In a darkroom print from a film negative, dodging decreases the exposure for areas of the print that the photographer wishes to be lighter, while burning increases the exposure to areas of the print that should be darker.
Project Goal: Create several prints in the darkroom by combining several unrelated subject matter into a single expression. Combine negatives, digital print outs and found materials. Utilize the dodging and burning technique to blend unrelated images, creating smooth transitions.
