    My First Cyanotype :)

    While nothing special I was so excited I wanted to share it with everyone else. I mixed my own chemistry and made my first cyanotype I had a bit of trouble scanning it in though so the fogged areas are not nearly so fogged. They are only slightly so. I'm a bit scanner stupid

    Pretty neat. What kind of paper is that? It looks like it's got a lot of texture to it, almost like fabric. You can have a lot of fun with this process, and it's cheap to boot! Try different papers and even fabric for interesting results. If you can get a hold of some ortho film, you can enlarge your smaller negatives and print them using a piece of glass sitting on a piece of foam, a proof printer, or a contact frame.

    Congrats! Isn't it a good feeling to be successful. I've never done photograms on cloth... only negatives on paper. My blue hasn't ever been as blue as yours. I like it.

    i did my first cyanotype yesterday. Some friends looked strange when i went outside with my neg/paper under glass. I put it onto the table where they sat and you say the blue coming up fast (it was very hot yesterday here..)
    They thought i new it all (if only they knew)

    After 3 minutes i took it back inside and put it into the water. they followed me to see what happened... it is very nice to extend my hobby with this.

    Happy shooting!
