I always have been fascinated by photography.
But with the introduction of the digital camera it all became too easy, too predictable …to me.
So I forced myself to go back to the roots of real analog photography.
Not just by making the photograph itself, but by controlling the entire photographic process.

This brought me back to the middle of the 19th century, to the amazing Collodion wet plate process.
And every single day I feel challenged to refine and improve myself.

Some ideas are so simple.....

Jo Smigiel from the collodion forum posted an brilliant idea for taking of the protective cover from aluminium sheets.
If you have ever tried to do this with gloves you will know that it is almost impossible to do.
Solution : just a tiny piece of tape sticked at the corner of a plate and it comes of very easy. Just as simple as that.
I just made some pictures to illustrate this brilliant tip.

Solution, just a tiny piece of tape.
