"Still" Loving the Sun Printing!!!!
I did more sunprinting today - finally tried doing a photo. This is my Grandson Aaron - 11 years old and I think it came out really well.
On the left side, Aaron-done in Cyanotype - Sun Printing! August 2, 2010.
On the right side is the original photo used to create the transparency for the cyanotype.
I love the results - maximum results - minimum effort involved.
I took the original photo and sharpened the contrast a couple of times. Then I made a B&W copy and sharpened the contrast a couple more times. Finally, I used Adobe Photoshop to create a negative and printed it out on transparency sheets. After that I laied the transparency on the specially treated fabric, in the sun for 15 minutes, and VOILA!!!!
