    my first cyanotype

    today i did my first cyanotype.

    turned out very good. Didnt have any problems. It took 25mins in the sunlight. could have gone for 40mins for some more density. the print looks alot better than this digital photograph of it.

    Nice one! The dead fish works well in blue. Do some more and put them in the Experimental Gallery. One can never get enough of well made cyanotypes. I think, at least...

    EDIT: I realized you aren't a subscriber, but well... keep them coming anyways.

    I like it! It turned out much better than my first attempt. I'm also glad to see that I'm not the only one using ye olde sun for exposures. I was beginning to think that everyone had some sort of indoor UV device but me.

    I like it too. I haven't cyanotyoped for a decade or so, but my color with traditional formula was always more "brilliant" blue. Did you do anything special to get the deeper blue that you have in this image? I like it!

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Brian i dont think i did anything special to get the blues like this. I did not use any peroxide in the washing.
    This stuff is fun!! I have 10 new negatives that i will be trying cyanotypes with. Just gotta develop them first.

    Brian, the blue you get varies from paper to paper, and is typicaly stronger in the darker areas if you coat the paper twice.
