Alternative photography

The NCFE Photography students have started experimenting with alternative photographic processes.  This week they have been trying Cyanotypes.  A process developed by Sir John Herschel in 1842.  Potassium ferricyanide and Ferric ammonium citrate are mixed together to create a photosensitive emulsion which is painted onto paper or fabric.  The students then used natural daylight to expose the images.  The resultant images look amazing.
