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.

Wetplate gathering with Sir Eddie

Last Sunday we met Eddie from the USA at the fotografica fair in Houten.
On tuesday evening he visited my small studio and Ben, eddie and me made some nice plates.
We tried some different lenses, including my large noname petzval.
Had never used it before.......
It turned out to be a great lens.
It's alway's fun to see other wetplaters making his or her own plates.
Everybody has it's own way of working and personal style.

some results :
