Sun-printmaking and Salsa with Farm Fresh Tomatoes

This lesson will allow students to explore the basics of the photographic process by creating their own cyanotype print using found objects. A cyanotype is a photographic print made by placing objects directly onto light sensitive paper and then exposing the paper to light. Students will use a minimum of four objects to create an interesting composition on a 4”x5” piece of photosensitive paper. Students will place their composition in the sun and will watch how the sunlight “develops” their photograph by turning exposed areas blue and leaving covered areas white.
