From solargraph to cyanotype

 I usually use cyanotype as an in-camera negative. This is a slow process - each exposure is a couple of hours at least. 

I also shoot solargraphs. This is also a slow process, with exposures measured in days or months. Or even years. 

As you all saw, a few days ago I brought in one of my six month solargraphs. The resulting image was dramatic enough, that I thought it would make a good cyanotype contact print. This is a very fast process by comparison. Exposure time in Perth in mid-summer is around 4-5 minutes. 

Here is the result. I think I will do another print, this time on a tee-shirt!
