More of (toned) Cyanotypes

Cyanotype is an old photographic printing process that produces each time slightly different results of the same negative.

Precipitación

You learn to see things by practice. It’s just like playing tennis, you get better the more you play. The more you look around at things, the more you see. The more you photograph, the more you realize what can be photographed and what can’t be photographed. You just have to keep doing it.
