Cynthia A. Hurayt, a pharmacist from Alpine, Texas, USA, uses the lumen print process to explore the capabilites of the right side of the brain.
From: Alpine, Texas, USA.
Shows: Lumen prints.

Cynthia A. Hurayt’s profession is Pharmacist. She lives and work in Alpine, Texas, USA. While using her left brain, she felt she needed something to utilize the right side of the brain. She began printing in the darkroom when everyone started turning to digital photography. Analog photography is still mostly left brain activity in Cynthia’s opinion.

Cynthia A. Hurayt began doing Lumen prints after discovering “Alternative Photography” website (this one!). She found that the Lumen process forces her out of my left brain much more. Composition is key, but the surprises of toning the print are fun! Cynthia hopes to keep evolving in the lumen process.

“Any day in the darkroom is a great day. Avoid looking at the trash bin.”

  1. Hi Cynthia
    i have been looking at the exquisite images on the aternative photography website. i have recently started looking at lumen printing and will likely start doing some test shots in the coming week. I am a radiographer and keen photographer but this modality has a really soft and wonderful feel about it and i am keen to explore this and see where it takes me. it also engages my creative side so i am looking forward to that too. Do you have any tips as to whether photo paper or film works best or gives different results, and is there a difference in exposure time? in terms of fixing have you tried the salt water fixer or do you have a preference for the thiosulfate fixers? any hints or tips for a beginner would be wonderful. thank you and your works here are exquisite
