How do Cyanotypes Happen?

Over the last few weeks I have shared several posts about making cyanotypes, my new obsession. Some of you asked about how they're made. In today's post, I am attempting to answer that without words.

Support this blog: Do you like my free content but are not ready to buy a photograph yet? Using my links (Amazon) to do your shopping helps me share more photographs and write the stories behind them.

Yes, instead of my usual photography I went for a video this time. No worries though, this is definitely the exception rather than the rule. And yes, there is a music track included so adjust your computer based on where you are watching.

If the process and results caught your eye, don't hesitate to head over to my newish Cyanotypes photo gallery. It's small for now, just six photos as of this writing, but it will grow from here. I already have several blue projects in mind!

Enjoy The Beauty That Surrounds You! #etbtsy

PS: Music for the video by Mike Gutterman. Thank you!

Do you enjoy reading my photography blog? Would you like to see more traditional wet prints? Visit my Darkroom photo gallery and enjoy! Do not hesitate to contact me whether you would like to learn more or would like to purchase one of my prints.

Using my links to do your shopping keeps me sharing more photographs and writing the stories behind them (commission earned) and costs you nothing. You can also use the Amazon search box in bottom left for anything at all. I truly appreciate each purchase, no matter how large, no matter how small. And yes, if you choose to buy one of my photographs, that would be swell. Thank you!
