First I planned to make it inside a library or so but then realized that it would fit much better in the series when made outside again.
The risk is always the weather but yesterday the weather gods were with us.
Cloudy but bright. So perfect weather to make a wet plate.
but he was also the model.
Normally he’s behind the camera so this were his first modeling steps....
While making the first plate I pulled out the slide of the holder while the cap wasn’t on the lens.
So don’t know the exact exposure time but it came our surprisingly well.
We made some minor changes on the set up and made 3 other plates.
As always the last one was the best it and it turned out to be the fastest shoot I ever did.
Plate was made within 2 hours!
As Ferry wasn't the model this time he was able to make some pictures of the shoot itself.
26x26cm black glass ambrotype
exposure time 6 seconds
