THE CYANOTYPE TECHNIQUE



Photography literally means “painting with light”. We work with an ancient photographic process using UV light as the primary medium to produce unique prints. The sunshine spills from these, one of a kind photos, creating contrast and hues of blue when developed in our at home dark room. Something supernatural happens when light and life react. Energy and color burst forth, bringing beauty into everyday reality. Thanks to the light we learn to see the world around us more clearly.

A more scientifique description:

The cyanotype process was one of the first non-silver techniques used to create photographic images. Originated in the 1840's, it was not utilized in mainstream photography and was adopted as a copying technique, becoming known by the term "blueprint", with its blue background reproductions of large architectural and mechanical drawings.





The steps to the creation of a cyanotype!







It seems quite simple but the chemistry is not always on our side... 🤓
