Sun Prints

Today I made two sun prints. These are very easy and good fun. You just place something flat on top of a piece of photo paper, then leave them in a frame to expose in the sun for a few hours. Unless you fix sun prints with photographic chemicals, they will quickly fade in daylight, so it’s best to scan or photograph them as soon as possible.

I made one print from a feather I found near Arnold’s House, the other with the leaves discovered pressed inside a book abour Swedish plants.

Both prints are very delicate and subtle but digitalising them with my iPhone and adjusting the contrast has revealed more detail.
