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.

Great find at Houten fair

Yesterday we showed some collodion plates at the Houten fair in Houten.
One of the largest photografica fairs in Europe.
We talked to a lot of people who were really interested in the colldion proces.

Ofcourse this is a Mekka for me trying to find interesting stuff. And i did !!
A place for Boys toys
I found myself a very nice Hermagis aplanetiques grand angles nr4.
This lens fits perfectly on my new 20x20 inch camera. The couvarge is perfect.
Because it's a relatively small lens it will look a bit odd on that big camera.

 Just to show how big that fair is.

Me happy, but Ben..........????
