Tried an Anthotype using turmeric.
Lessons learnt after first attempt
1. Thicker paper to be used . Thin papers soaks the dye through to the other side and the dye on the other side doesn't bleach well in sunlight.
2. Smooth paper bleeds less but rough paper give better texture.
3. Very thin coat of the dye needs to be applied . Thicker the coat longer the exposure.

Planning to try an in camera Anthotype or a cyanotype using a vintage medium format Yaschica. Have a vague idea in mind but need to research on that. Don't have a cable release for the Yaschica. Maybe I'll tape down the shutter and just use the cap as shutter. Will post that if I get around completing my experiment.

This is interesting Vinayak. I did not know about this process. Little bit of googling led me to this page. I was looking for how is this process is related to photography. Interestingly it appears that the process creates light sensitive paper from an ordinary paper.

This is a photogram right? Like the overall aesthetics of it including the edges and the brush strokes. Interesting possibilities with this and Cyano salt etc
Some people create an internegative on transparent paper and do a contact print. That way you can start digital and still print on this. Good work

Raj, I was thinking, using some flavours of special Awagami paper as base may help make interesting prints using this process? Just guessing..

Thanks everyone for the appreciation and encouragement.
Forgot to mention the most important lesson learnt. This process stains everything, so if you are using the kitchen for your experiments, be very sure to spread some newspaper on the kitchen platform. I forgot to do that and my wife was neither encouraging and certainly not appreciative of the mess and stains on her white kitchen platform :)

Thank you, Vinayak, this last lesson is probably very very important for many :D

The result you show us here is very nice, but I hope you tries out what you are planning - I am curious of what you are getting as result. It is always interesting with odd methods, especially connected into new ideas.

Congratulations on the IOM!! Very interesting technique and result. Even i am curious how it can adapted further for nature photography. Loved the result you have got here. TFS

Congratulations, Vinayak! I have learnt something new from this image. It is interesting, 'photography' can be done without a camera and lens too!!
