Photography: n. the art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy and especially light on a sensitive surface (such as film or an optical sensor) - Merriam Webster online
The photographic process doen't just include film and optical sensors - it's more. OH SO MUCH MORE! It's fun and exciting to experiment with alternative processes. It's a whole other world, with wonderful luxurious exhaustive textbooks that can inspire creative people for a lifetime! Cyanotypes are just one example, and I love making them whenever I get the chance. I will post more here on my website about them, but for now you can take a look at my dedicated Facebook page and Instagram if you are interested in learning more.
