Virtual Guinness?

By imjam
This started off life as a Guinness glass lying on its side. Just exposed on developing paper with a medium strength light for 14 seconds. I liked the detail in the glasswork all faults could be seen. I then decided to try and make it look more like an actual pint (apart from the writing on the glass) by holding a piece of cardboard over the top of the glass for the 11 seconds of exposure, thus creating the head on the pint. This obviously underexposed the whole of the top side of the image so this was adjusted in Photoshop.

Nice photogram, I had to do some of these for a C&G course.

As others have said, the scratches in the glass make it look as if it was spinning.

An interesting project and I'm surprised that it has not had much attention. Very interesting to hear the methods you used to get this result too.
