    Re: Alt-Process Prints from Digital Negatives or Positives

    With the excellent Large Format shooters across the world who now use various camera sizes and make digital negatives, why not?
    Using and scanning from larger negatives is fine but many of the old line photographers are getting along in years and lighter equipment makes sense.

    Add in we are seeing more freedom in what and how people photograph using smaller sized cameras and we are seeing new and even more exciting images from many.

    "The Nurturers" - a Platinum-Palladium Print
    I made this print a few years ago for Breast Cancer Awareness month but never turned it in.
    Is it not ironic that that which The Nurturer uses to nourish and raise life can turn around and take life?

    Now that I've started to take some steps in cyanotype territory myself, I start to appreciate this image even more; excellent tones and contrast! The composition suits the process very well too.

    Here's a cyanotype from a digital negative from my end. The original was shot with a Mamiya 50mm/1.7 on Fomapan 100. Printed on double coated Schut drawing paper (DIN A5 size, the image itself is a little over 10x15cm). I spent quite some time calibrating to control the high contrast and exponential exposure curve of this process. This is the first print I'm sort of happy with. The 'sort of' stems from some issues with negative flatness, so the next step will be to devise a more reliable printing frame.

    Sorry I don' t do digital negatives (or only rarely), but I do make alt processes using small format negatives...

    This is a dear little dear...

    Two more cyanotypes:

    Great images!
    I love to mess with cyanotypes.I had tested a lot of papers and finally set at Canson Montval ( pretty inexpensive) pre acidified in a bath of Sulfamic Acid to neutralize the calcium carbonate. It goes very well for me with the New Cyanotype formula and setting the gamma to 2,2 ( Dr. Mike Ware method) to get an overall "curve" to correct the tones. Works better to me then Chart Throb. The other thing is that I got an Epson 1430W printer that, against all odds, blocks UV big time with Claria Inks giving me white paper whites, or almost:

    This is a somewhat crappy repro. The real thing is much bluer and better looking...

    Thanks Ricardo! I have no experience with ChartThrob, but it looks interesting. However, I had a lot of fun creating a curve by hand (and by eye) for cyanotypes and for my purposes, it works quite well. I use an Epson 3880 and I find that the photo black and yellow inks block UV great - so much in fact that I have to print with a lower color density (-18%) on the transparencies I use. I outlined the process I use on this page.

    Gorgeous tonality on that cabbage print btw!

    Some more from Metz, France; these were made with a Canon 7D, so they're very much from a digital origin.
