Current Projects

Right now I am working on photosynthesis printing on kale, lettuce, and spinach with help from the Alternative Process tutorials.  I am also getting ready to cyanotype on wood and work with Liquid Light emulsion.

More Anthotypes

These anthotypes (made with the same spinach mixture as the first) were left in the rain, which I think is why they didn't come out as well.

Both were edited in Photoshop to make the images more pronounced.

In addition to my Independent Study, I also am in Advanced Photography IV. Our first project was to explore the topic of Home, which I did through this diptych.

They were taken with an Argus C3 and Spartan 400 film, with the double exposure in the second image done in camera.

Anthotype: Round One

My first project of the year that I am currently working on is anthotyping. So far this image, made out of spinach and 91% rubbing alcohol, is the only one to work. The other juices I tried were red onion and goldenrod, both of which have showed no change.

I coated watercolor paper with the solution and let it dry, then stacked it in a clear frame with a paper positive. It took three days at 3-5 hours of sun per day to complete.


     My name is Hailey Lamb, and this blog is a way for me to share my work and experience as a high school senior studying Alternative Process Photography.

     I have a variety of projects planned for the year, including anthotyping, in camera cyanotyping, and various 35mm/120 film processes.  My hope for this blog is to be able to connect with other students working in these areas and to record my methods for future use.

     This blog will be under construction for the next week or so, but I hope to get everything set and start sharing projects soon.  Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to interacting with you.
