The top part of the diagram shows the big picture: light from the scene enters the camera and is recorded and stored.

Control and measure

The bottom section describes how to control and measure the process at each stage.

Having a good understanding of how the image is formed, and how to control it, gives you more creative control over your final images.

It will take a little time to absorb all the relationships, terms and figures.

Purchasing Options

Two versions of the print are available: a screen printed version is larger and printed by hand; a riso version is smaller and printed mechanically. Both use techniques that print solid blocks of vivid colour.

A2 Screen Print

A3 Riso Print

Screen printed by hand

Screen printing involves directly applying inks to paper through a stencil. The stencil is created by setting an impermeable substance into a very fine mesh screen (hence 'screen printing'). You then push the inks through the screen onto the paper using a thick rubber blade called a squeegee.

A close up image of one of the screens I've used can be seen on the about page.

Riso printed by machine

Riso printing technique is similar to screen printing, but produced by machine.
