Twin Trees by Colin O.

The inspiration for this project came from a photographer named Jerry Uelsmann, who works with different techniques in the dark room to put out some pretty brilliant work. One picture of his is of trees floating in mid air. I built from that idea first trying to duplicate it in my picture and then starting to experiment with it in the dark room. I tried a variety of things including moving the paper during the exposure to get a blurred effect, and printing it twice once upside down to create something like a reflection. This one was a result of simply printing the negative twice next to each other. Its actually just 1 tree. This turned out the best of all because of the very uniform background.
