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.

How does a petzval lens looks like?

Every  now and then I receive questions about petzval lenses.
How does a petzval lens looks like, how the glass should be mounted, etc.
So I made this short video which shows you the inside of a petzval lens
and how the glass parts should be mounted.
