Tony G., an LMC Photo II student, really wanted to try an old-time photo process. We settled on making a cyanotype, because the process doesn't require a darkroom. It does, however, require a large negative. We solved that problem by making one in Photoshop and printing it a transparency on our laser printer. Tony bought a commercial "sun print" kit and we went to work. Watching the image appear in water, then explode into blue when dipped in hydrogen peroxide was a blast.
It's almost like we're in 1840 again. I'm hoping this is just the start of a grand, continuing experiment.
