Cyanotype Printing, Toning & Van Dyke Brown in the Digital Age

Related Member: Daniel Coburn

During this immersive, 3-Day workshop you will learn to make cyanotype prints that rival the tonal range and seductive quality of platinum prints. By carefully utilizing the Modern Cyanotype process and fine-tuning a set of digital negatives, workshop participants will learn to make pristine Cyanotype prints. This nineteenth century process is as versatile and economical as it is beautiful. Instruction will include specific details on how to tone cyanotype prints a variety of rich colors and hues. It's relatively non-toxic, and printing techniques can be carried out in normal room light, which makes this printing technique ideal for a home workshop or studio.

About the Instructor: Daniel W. Coburn teaches Alternative Process techniques at the University of Kansas. His work is in collections at the Museum of Contemporary Photography Chicago, The University of New Mexico Art Museum, and other major institution in the United States. In this short workshop you will learn the secrets of correct paper/chemistry combinations and digital techniques that he has perfected for modern Cyanotypes through a decade of research.
