Continuing my witterings about photography related stuff, I've been trying out Cyanotype printing, one of several methods of making chemical prints from contact negatives.

Here's a roughly A3 sized cyanotype print I made from a shot I took in Moffat's old kirkyard. It's a simple matter of making up a solution, painting it onto some ordinary paper and allowing it to dry, before exposing it with sunlight or any UV source while sat under the negative. The next set of chemicals I'll buy is for a silver process called Van Dyke 'Brown' (because it makes brown prints obviously), and that's the process that the term 'sepia' print originated from.
