I thought I would include a video I had made a while ago in this post on a quick rundown of the cyanotype process: I am really looking forward for the summer months! Although you can use artificial lighting,( U.V lighting such as work lights), for the last step in the cyanotype process, I rather and love using the sun! In my own personal experience, I feel the tonal range comes out richer and better. Looking forward to posting some new […]

Although I had already been looking into trying the cyanotype process for a while before it now being one of my favourite techniques to work with , it was not until I came across this blog, Photoeidolon, about 4 years ago which had inspired me to go deeper and to give it a go.

One of my Cyanotype portraits has been selected will be exhibited at Gallery 136 1/2 at PhotoSynthesis in Manchester Connecticut!! Exhibition: Saturday, August 6–Saturday, August 27, 2016.

It seems as though things are falling into place and that opportunity has come a lot faster than I had imagined! (some previous work) There was a recent […]

I came to realize that I did not have much tea in the house so I used coffee instead. I was quite excited to post these that I did not give them a chance to flatten out! For my first couple of tries I don’t think they came out that bad 🙂 A New […]
I have been inspired by the cyanotype process! I have been experimenting with old images wanting to see how things worked. I love it. Here is a little sneak peek for yah: As you can see the first one came out a little wacky…although I still find it kind of interesting 🙂 On my first attempt, I had used a black light and after an hour..nothing appeared! Initially I thought that maybe I did not make the formula correctly and decided to […]
