Burlesque Style Photography

I was looking back at my previous university work and one of my favourite projects of mine was on the history of Burlesque. I had to write an essay as well as producing sufficient images, which I did on film and printed them myself in the darkroom.

My technique idea was to use fast film, to get an extra grainy effect, as I wanted the images to look old. I also did different things to the negatives like scratching and leaving dust on etc to get a really old fashioned feel on them. I also used colour film and processed in black and white so I would get even more noise.

These are all my printed images scanned to my computer.

These were my early second year work so please excuse the blown highlights.
