DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY IS MY BOYFRIEND AND FILM IS MY HUSBAND....

Digital photography is my boyfriend and film is my husband which is based on a typical love and hate relationship. You can have both at the same time, right??? :)

Last weeks I tried some ancient techniques based on film applicable to photography. I have to admit I didn´t success in it, but I promise I´ll do…. Firstly I tried cyanotype. I worked with two stock solutions: ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanidem and water. Both of these chemicals are pretty nice powders: one extra blue and another one of extra orange colour. You should know they are toxic, so don´t confuse them with species you use for preparation of food.  I really enjoyed the process of working in a dark room, it´s pretty magical, it was timeless for me…red light, smell of developer solution, your fingers are wet, they touch the paper, they feel its texture, recycled papers I adore so!!!, you put a negative, exposition to sun light and… damn, 5 or 7 minutes or may be more, you never know an  exact time period and you get the image…

I also tried salted paper…here the results guys:)
