Cyanotype is a photographic process which consist of iron salts, UV light and paper. The result is cyan-blue print. Take a smartphone picture, just in case take a smartphone USB data cable and leave the rest of us. The scientist Sir John Herschel discovered the procedure in 1842. The first practitioner was Anna Atkins, who is also considered to be the first female photographer. Although cyanotype is one of the oldest photographic processes, it can be combined with modern technology.
