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.

New plate carying box

What to do with Easter?
Recently I bought myself some Festool woodworking tools (really great stuff!)
I had nothing to do and the sun was shining today
(although it's still very cold over here). 

So I made myself an adjustable plate box.
This box can hold 13 26x26cm plates and is adjustable to 18x24 cm or even 13x18cm.
I can take out the middle part and adjust it to the other sizes.
From now on I can have a shoot and bring my plates home safely without
asking somebody to hold them the whole drive back home......
Still have to do the paintjob.
