Easter 2: Cyanotypes

I previously worked on cyanotypes in week 11, playing with the different stairs that I had produced and the strong shadows that the sun was producing. They were very strong, creating stark contrasts between the stairs print and the blue of the cyanotype chemical. This collection of cyanotypes were lighter than previous attempts, for reasons I was unsure of. Al of them were very shadowed (despite the images being clear, but this was an auto-correction on behalf of the camera). I enjoyed the manipulation of the light to create ‘new’ stairs for malformed shadows due to the strong sunlight. Although these pieces are relatively small and despite wanting to go bigger, I hope to use some of them in relation to the photograms and photographs for my summative piece.
