What have I been doing apart from trying to get my cyanotype problem figured out? That does take a while, but the rest of the class has moved on to pinhole cameras and I’m right there with them. The instructor was kind enough to make up the first batch herself out of small paint cans, so everyone started out just using the same camera and 4×5 paper for negatives (Ilford RC Satin paper, if anyone cares). It took about a minute to expose this:
I’ve only done four paper negatives so far and just right outside the darkroom, it seems more convenient to do it close to the chemicals so I can see if what I’m doing works. We all made pinhole cameras in class too, so I have options. I made mine out of a body cap to fit my Spotmatic cameras, so that’s been most of my output.
