Ash Leaves Faux Cyanotype [Photography]

By Douglas E. Welch on Jul 30, 2022 06:53 pm

Some leaves from our large Ash tree in the back garden. I have digitally turned this photograph into a faux cyanotype. I have made true cyanotypes in the past, but have been trying out various methods of applying them to existing photos. – Douglas

Ash Faux Cyanotype

Here are the steps I used in a current version of Photoshop (but you can probably duplicate them using your own favorite tools:

Create a Cyanotype look in Photoshop

  • Open subject file (leaves, etc.)
  • Switch to Greyscale
  • Remove background
  • Invert Image
  • Convert to Color
  • Create background layer
  • Fill with cyanotype color
  • Set subject layer to Hard Light (to take on the color of the background
  • Filter, Add Noise… to give some grain to the background or use texture file.

Find a variety of books about cyanotypes

Find supplies for making traditional cyanotypes

Embroidery artist Sew Beautiful shows the beauty of forests through their trees. Using colorful thread and a lot of the French knot stitch, the UK-based creative depicts nature scenes featuring tall timber full of leaves as well as bountiful fields of blooms. Contained in circular hoops, each frame offers a picture-window view into a lovely landscape; if you long for getting outside and enjoying nature, Sew Beautiful’s pieces are a welcome visual escape.

Some of Sew Beautiful’s most striking pieces feature the use of organza, a transparent fabric that can make stitches look as though they’re floating. This is exemplified through pieces in which we’re looking up at the treetops from a grounded point of view.
