Beginnings of cyanotype printing

Blog, Experimental photography

My cyanotype chemicals arrived this week, and I’ve been printing some photos using a large ball of fusion gases that I have available for a large chunk of the day. The process is a fun one, everything from preparing the paper, and figuring out the proper exposures as clouds ruin my timing, etc.

Overall, I’m pleased with the process. I’ve found portraits to be a bit difficult, requiring two or three attempts to get the proper exposure, but here’s an example of a photo that came out well. I’m considering placing some of these in the shop, if there’s interest, please let me know.

The Clan Lamont memorial at Dunoon, Scotland. Taken summer of 2018, printed summer of 2020.
