Reading about solar printing was a nice addition to everything Drew covered in class. It helped reinforce everything Drew said as well as drop in other facts. Being used to a regular print, it was very interesting to do a printmaking technique. I was particularly surprised how different the image looked when printed with a plate. However, when I printed out the negative regularly, i was surprised how close they were. It was nice to learn and actually do some printmaking, since I never ended up taking any of the classes.
