    Hello,

    I'm fully aware of the length of time taken to complete a solargraph, and how time can be contracted into a single frame and hold so much! I love it.

    So I'm wondering if there are any other processes that offer a similar ability to play with long-lengths of time. Whether it be the act of taking the photograph itself, or a method of printing it, etc.

    I really appreciate it!

    Thanks,
    G

    Hmmmm,

    well, any photographer with a camera taking a photograph has an similar ability to play with long-lengths of time...

    Do you know about ND filters ?

    Yes, yes sir. I was thinking more in the realms of the development/printing process though.

    Printing yes - cant find the links at the moment but someone used leaves as paper - they were images from Vietnam if I recall ...

    Takes a long time !

    Sorta like Anthrotypes but direct onto the leaves

    These are fantastic suggestions, I especially love the idea of printing on grass - genius...

    Thanks folks you've given me some great starting points!
