Cyanotype in progress by Ian Ledgard, GMPSA, EFIAP/p, AWPF, GPU-Cr4

September 2021 - Cyanotype in progress

About the Image(s)

Last week one of my Camera Club members ran a short cyanotype workshop which I found most interesting. After the elements had been placed on the sensitised paper they were covered with a sheet of glass which had been sprayed with vinegar.Clamped together they were then placed out in daylight for the Exposure to take place. What I found interesing were the colour changes that appeared as the exposure progressed. This is one of of those stages.

Here is the finished cyaonotype. Personally I prefer the partially exposed version. What do you think?   Posted: 09/01/2021 09:48:05

I think that you stopped this at the right moment in the process with the partial exposure. The only bit I don't like are the green patches on the leaves which could easily be cloned out.
It's amazing some of the processes we go through in photography. I remember pouring an acid solution on colour slides and photographing the result!   Posted: 09/01/2021 13:14:05

I like the partial process better too. What an interesting process; a nod to the history of our art!   Posted: 09/07/2021 14:16:04
