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.

"You don't take a picture, it's given to you"

At the end of todays shooting  I was able to make a "cuicky".
All kinds of trouble.... First plate was ready for use, but it turned out to be too wide so it didn't fit in the plate holder. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh.

So quickly cut a new one, cleaned it (to fast) and made this plate.
So not the cleanest plate I made but I somehow like it...

18x24cm black glass ambrotype
Dallmeyer 3a wide open f4
Exposure time 5 seconds
