Trumpet Flower Lumen Print

This is a lumen print BEFORE it goes in the fixer. (See yesterday for what these look like after fixing.) This is such a simple and satisfying process, like sunprints (cyanotypes) but with surprising and entrancing color results. I used Ilford Multigrade IV Fiber paper. Development is in plain water, the only chemical needed is a fixer. If you want to try it check out the article on alternativephotography.com.
