Blue Prints: Cyanotype
- Sunday, March 21st, 11am-2pm
The class will begin with a discussion on sourcing, mixing and storing of the chemistry used in preparing the photographic emulsion. Then basic digital negative preparation and enlargement will be covered, along with available options for printing. This course will use a UV light source in the print shop, but printing with sunlight will also be discussed.
Once prints have been made, the techniques of bleaching and toning will be demonstrated. Finishing techniques will be discussed, touching upon the archival qualities of the prints, to conclude the class.
Materials to bring to class: Bring an image or three with you on a hard drive or you can download your images here.
