My name is Michael Bordeaux and I enjoy taking photographs. Taking photos is relaxing and allows me to use my creativity. My favorite past time is baseball.
My photo uses the rule of thirds by focusing on the top right where the sun is. The photo on the right also uses the rule of thirds by putting the focus on the bottom right where the football is.
Diagonal, Rule of Thirds, Run-off
The hands on Tintype process takes more merit than the digital photographic process to mimic the tintype process. This is because the settings in the digital photographic process can be adjusted but the actual process has to be completely re-done if you mess up.
The print came out fantastic. I had to make a negative in Photoshop and print it. After that, I mixed chemicals together and put it onto a paper. Once the paper dried, I put the negative on top of it and put them in the light box for a total of 11 minutes. The negative was printed onto the paper through this process and the chemicals were washed off right after it was taken out of the box. Lastly, i matted it and took a picture of it. I enjoyed this process because it was fun to learn about the old ways of photography. I prefer regular printing because it is less time consuming and it is easier to reprint if an error is made. The cyanotype came out successfully and the only thing I could have improved is possibly changing the exposure time.
