Cyanotype workshop by Siddharth Kaneria at The Project Cafe, Ahmedabad

Cyanotype is an old monochrome photographic printing process which gives a cyan-blue print. Originated in the 1840’s, it was not utilized in mainstream photography and was adopted as a copying technique, becoming known by the term “blueprint”. To begin the process, two solutions are prepared for the two-part sensitizing process — Potassium Ferricyanide and Ferric Ammonium Citrate (green). Too much potassium ferricyanide in the solution will lower printing speed, too little may cause the blue color to bleed into the lighter areas. Basically equal volumes of the two solutions are used. Solutions can be stored for several months in amber glass bottles.

Siddharth Kaneria, graduate in Interior design, with a professional experience of over 5 years in communication design. But he is passionate about photography more than anything, quietly creating a treasure of images for the last 8+ years. With the digital age ushering in a greater need for visual content, Siddharth have heart for vintage cameras and the technique they use.

The Tower Man is a story of a curious white clothes, big mustache under the hat man who fascinates pendulum clock.

Eating is one of life’s greatest blessing and pleasure you can’t deny. And for travelers it’s not solely about eating good food. It is about understanding the culture heritage. Culinary traditions. Rituals. Art beyond boundaries. Even a simple raw onions can do wonders to your body that you learn from interacting with locals and sharing the knowledge with the world. In today’s world Gastronomy or Culinary Tourism (refers to trips made to destinations where the local food and beverages are the main motivating factors for travel) has emerged as an integral part to any tourist experience.
