How to collage using traditional analog photography techniques

Learn the polaroid emulsion transfer process. After polaroid closed it disappeared out of general use. It is back. It is retro. It is super cool.
Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints. Artists and photographers use it to create beautiful blue art prints.
