View Full Version : First Cyanotype

Way too many things went wrong to list, but grabbing the wrong negative in "subdued" lighting was the only fortunate mistake as my incandescent grow light did a good job of cooking the negative.

Still a good learning experience, and I was amazed at finally going from start to finish on an image.

Small steps....and lot's of them! Hey you got an image, I'll bet not everyone can make that claim. Thanks for sharing.

Well done; you have a useful range of tones in the image that makes the reflections on the pots look very nice.

Keep going, alternative printing can be a roller coaster of highs and lows, but it is well worth the effort in the end: just remember to keep good notes so when it works really well, you know what you did and can repeat it!

Best regards,
