My first Solarplate prints

Here's a quick run through of the plates I printed for an exhibition I had in September 2010. I had been to an exhibition of beautiful Paul Kenny photographs called 'Mull Works' which fired my creativity.
After a brief search I found a beach on Mull which had some unusual rock formations, these would polish the shells on the beach to a finish I hadn't seen elsewhere. I selected the most interesting and photographed them, printed on to acetate sheets, and exposed with direct sun light (we had a great summer in 2010!) for between 1 minute 10 seconds and 3 minutes 30. Here's the process.......
