    aj - can't see your cyano.

    Here's an old one of mine. Made some digital negatives from LF negatives shortly after aquiring a 4x5 about 10 years ago. At the time I didn't have a darkroom for printing my 4x5's, and scanning and inkjet prints wasn't satisfying my need to muck about with potions. Cyanotypes were my first steps into alt printing....a slippery slope I'm still sliding down.

    Canson Montval is the bees knees. I love it.

    This one was taken and printed about 1998. The cyanotype is on Bienfang Graphics 360 Marker Paper which is very thin and translucent. 8x10 B&J Grover with a 300mm Symmar, IIRC.

    Joe , this is great portrait.
    BTW , did any of you tried printing your `didgital negative` onto copy calque, and then print a cyano ?
    How do u cope with tiny negative frames, I mean, making them bigger?
