*Blue Shefflera Man*
I finally nailed it. After weeks of trial and error to get my exposure times right and figure out the yellow cast I was getting, it was a comment on the Alternative Photography FB group that gave me the solution. I was not coating my paper with cyanotype solution and then exposing it immediately as it was drying. For convenience’s sake, I was preparing a batch of paper at night, and using them in the next few days or weeks. Turns out that explains the prevalence of this yellow cast. In the next couple of days I’ll show you the new results, but this cyanotype here is the first one where I have deliberately used old paper to get that copper toning. It’s all about replicable results.
