    post alternative techniques

    So many fine images in this forum.
    But I miss a thread where we can post our images, made in one or more of the fascinating "alternative" techniques that are out there...

    show us your Cyanotypes - Oil prints - Bromoils - Albumen's - Van Dyke's - Carbon prints - photo gravures or what you are currently working with.

    Please let us know what technique used (Camera's - lenses are always fine too)...

    C'mon: I dare you!

    Nice idea, I'd really like to see the alt work everyone is doing. I'll start with a carbon transfer- black/green tissue on Lana HP.

    5 X 7" Wet plate collodion Alumitype
    Kodak 8x10 2D with Darlot Petzval lens


    One of my first wet plate images, I'm still working the bugs out of my process. I took a bit of a break and was playing with Cyanotypes last weekend--what a simple and cool process. Compared to wet plate, which is just crazy.

    Re: post alternative techniques

    well - I have to post too...
    (I have played around with several old, strange techniques - many of them containing nudity - so now you're warned!)

    This is a result of a dare from my ex-girlfriend.
    She wanted to have me to make an image of her, inspired by Leonardo DaVinci...

    how difficult can that be????

    so This is what I ended up with.

    Photopolymer gravure with the text from Song of Songs written reversed..

    Gandolfi- my turn to be jealous. Gravures for me are THE process. Wish I could find a reasonable press and get started. What a fantastic image.

    Hey Andrew, it's a 5x12. I haven't started enlarging negatives for carbon yet. But a 10x24 carbon could be pretty cool.

    Here's a lightly gold-toned kallitype. Used a 7X17 Korona with 265mm Ilex. Plan on learning pt/pd next with Tillman Crane workshop, see Florida workshop Nov 8th
