This historic “Cyanotype” process was discovered in the early 1800’s and is one of the oldest mediums of photographic printing simply using the power of the suns UV light.

The simplicity of the cyanotype process makes it a great introduction to those new to photography or alternative printing, while the variations of beautiful blue tones and artistic flexibility also recommends for the serious fine art practitioners.
