Students brought in a photograph that was special to them for their cyanotype project. We talked about negatives and positives and how it related to the history and evolution of film. Most of the students had an electronic image and the others took a photograph or either scanned a copy of their photograph. Photoshop was used to make a digital negative. The students turned their color photographs to black and white and then used invert to create the negative that was then printed out on transparency. Because it was too cold to go outside, we exposed their images inside with the blinds wide open. Some students taped their borders before they applied the cyanotype solution and other painted a sloppy but beautiful border. For the most part, their cyanotypes turned out very nice but there were unfortunately a few fails due to over and underexposure.
