Lots of visitors were expected and i had promised him to give a demonstration wet plate photography.
Fortunately my darkroom tent arrived at Friday afternoon, so that’s what they call : “just in time”.
That tent just worked great. The only thing is that you can not open the zipper from the inside, so you always have to be with two persons. That will need some modification.
On Saterday there were a lot of people who were really interested in the wet plate process and i must say, it was really fun to give a demonstration.
For those kids it was real "magic"
A brief overview of that day.
The following pictures were made by Jan Theo Mellema and Henk Peters.
Many thanks !
