Newsletter January 2006


Happy new year to you all!

A new year begins... and hopefully we'll see many talented artists joining the site. This month we present 6 new ones as well as the results of the survey and more.


Thank you all who took part and contributed in the Cyanotype Exposure Survey. It's amazing to think that what takes 3 minutes in San Franscisco takes 3 hours in Kalingrad. Keep the feedback coming, especially those of you who use the sun as a lightsource. Take part. And here is where you can see the results of the Big Cyanotype Exposure Survey.

Also new is Jonathan Brewer's Cyclops II: The second installment. The story continues... the fabrication of a single glass element lens with exposure control.

And for those of you interested in Intaglio printing, read Peter Miller's step-by-step to the intaglio process.
