Time flew by and my daily posts, well…were not so daily. Here are a couple from today, still wet after being “in the drink” as my friend likes to say.
This image was just completed today and was still drying. The exposure for cyanotype in bright sun was 3 minutes, rest 5 minutes face down in cool grass, 4 minutes, rest 2 minutes. Developed in water, rinsing for around 10 minutes. Added a splash of hydrogen peroxide to water, then add print to deepen the blue (only for about 30 seconds). Rinse another 10 minutes. The paper was Fabriano Unica Paper, white.
Posted are some from the way-back machine. This subject, my daughter, has graduated from high school on the eleventh day of June, two thousand eighteen. In these abstract images, I am fascinated by her soft skin, plump lips and sweet face. In the one at the top, she had scratched her face with her tiny sharp fingernails, there was a little bit of blood, and she was waking up crying. In the one on the bottom she had fallen asleep while nursing and was in complete bliss.
This image was partially exposed in fluorescent light (by happy accident). The final exposure was 3 minutes in full sun, rest for 5 minutes, 5 more minutes in full sun. This was also from the June 6th workday.
This image was made with the cyanotype photographic process. The handwriting was written first with a white Prismacolor pencil. The cyanotype chemicals were added next. Exposure was a bit dark in this print. I would try less time next time.
The days 6, 7 and 8 of June were spent creating images, though most of the images were made on June 6th. Here are three of them:
This image was created using the Duotone process in Photoshop.
Day Four: For today’s WIP, I have to scan or photograph the images to let you see the work that was created for the One A Day project. Here is a progress shot of two lumens being made today.
