Sun Prints- Exploring Cyanotype Photography with Michelle Peterson
August 29
10:30 am to 3:30 pm
Take a break from your digital camera and have fun experimenting with one of the earliest forms of photography! First developed in the 19th century, cyanotype (aka blueprints) is a printing process that uses UV light to create beautiful cyan blue photographic prints. Students will explore the process and learn techniques and methods they can do in their own backyard. No previous photography experience necessary.
