    Hi everyone

    I've just joined the forum, although i've been having a look round for a while now but not felt ready to post.

    I'm studying photography just now, having taken a few years off work. I recently discovered alternative processes when doing a unit in college and really loved it. So far i've only done a few cyanotypes.

    I currently shoot with a mamiya 645 pro and Nikon F80. I also have digi but i'll save that for another forum.

    I've decided to do one of my college portfolios using alternative processes for printing. I currently think i'm doing cyanotypes, salt and van dyke but this could change as I read up on each process.

    I'm also going to do a progress blog as part of my college work which will track what i'm learning and give details of prints that i've done. Hopefully i'll be able to get some feedback from users of the group if anyone is interested in having a look.

    Julie

    Welcome to APUG, Julie. Good luck with the alternative processes. I'm about ready to try some cyanotypes myself.

    Hi Julie, and welcome to APUG. There are many here who do alternative processes. Post your pictures in the critique gallery and I'm sure you'll get lots of feedback.

    Thanks for the welcomes. The alternative process forum is full of lots of useful info. I'll sort out a subscription in a few days once my funds have been refreshed.

    Cyanotypes are fun although so far i've only done a few. I just wish I could do them outdoors but living in Scotland means I don't get the best sunshine.
