Photography: Reinventing the Rayogram


In photography we learned about artist Man Ray and our next project is to reinvent a innovation he made in creating what he called the Rayogram. Instead of the darkroom we will use a flatbed scanner as a camera source and we'll follow his lead is using everyday objects. Above is the example from the demonstration I gave yesterday in class. The first step is creating a quality composed scan then bringing it into Photoshop, changing it to gray scale, and applying effects to give it the unique solarization look. They are due on Tuesday and it's our final grade for the quarter.
