«Pencils» by Inaki BEGUIRISTAIN (UK, June 2015)
An origination technique, which has been mentioned many times over the years as ‘theoretically’ possible, but in reality very few people have ever attempted it due to many and complex practical considerations. This new technique -in fact a remix of old concepts- produces holograms that are not only significantly brighter and deeper but also allow for fully controlled lighting, which, as in photography, can play such a key role. The 3D image sits wherever you like relative to the plane of the glass, so you have both virtual and real image. And the control of ratios enable a much better balance to achieve the necessary modulation. Creatively the technique has so much potential. This hologram was made using a very complex optical system which involves the use of three lasers (Red, Green, Blue) to expose separate laser transmission masters for each colour component. All the object information, including its natural colours, is then transferred from each of the masters on to a single silver halide panchromatic glass plate. There are many stages and elements required to perfect this process, but the end result speaks for itself. This image is entirely produced using classical analogue methods of holography, and there is no digitisation at
any stage of the process. True-colour reflection transfer hologram from three transmission masters on BB-Pan glass plate, size 20×25 cm portrait.
