Water Garden

For years I have been collaborating wth the warm tropical sun and borrowing the deepest blue from the sea to make my plant portraits.  Now I am allowing the rain to influence my work as well.  I am creating my new collection of cyanotypes by spraying them before exposure with water and other fluids.  The texture this introduces to my work is pure magic.

For a step-by-step explanation of this process please visit the Photographer's Formulary Blog
