Will do, thanks Bob and Randy.
Anyone know if Bencher is still in business and providing replacement parts for Majestic tripods and heads? Called the number from their website but no answer and the contact link looked like threw a...
Wow Barry, love that!
I have been using an old Speedotron 4800 pack and head I picked up via eBay from a fairly well known camera store for $550 shipping included. Works well with collodion and blows away my White...
I just snagged one of these off eBay to shoot some wet plate with. Inspired by a fellow in Europe. Looked like a convenient size camera to...
Love that Daniel. I actually remember stopping to shoot a few (exclusive digital days) there while on the way to Yosemite once when 140 was closed. I knew it looked familiar! Crazy for a boy from...
Well said Peter! I am still enjoying memories from two wonderful grandfathers who shared their skills with me and attempting to pass on the memories with my own grandson.
Tri, what a beautiful print! I wish I could see the show in person!
A little upscale senior portrait for my niece. Wet plate on trophy aluminum, Hyatt Petzval @ f8. Whole plate on Deardorff V8.
Two beautiful photographs Luke!
Nice plates Mark, like the feel of #1 especially!
Whole plate on trophy aluminum, Krista. Still frustrated with the unsatisfactory performance of my lighting for interior shots. Compact spiral fluorescent banks with ~3000 watt equivalent still a 30s...
Whole plate on trophy aluminum of my fathers football cleats from high school, circa 1947. In person, the plate has a lovely 3 dimensional look.
Beautiful Sergei. Nice lighting and love the center sharpness.
Thanks Jim. Funny, I was looking at that skull the other day and really strange you should mention it - this was our test plate and she had a goat skull!
Thanks so much guys, I've only been doing this about 3 months so still trying to put all the pieces together for consistent results. She's definitely real. When I saw the plate, I thought she looked...
Let's see if he really hates it, here is one from yesterday. Whole plate, Hyatt Petzval acquired here on the FS forum. Shot wide open @ f5.
Love the second one Ustas! Beautiful model and lighting is sweet IMHO.
Very nice Alex!
+1 for either Coffer or Quinn's books/videos. I am a beginner and have both. Both have been beneficial to me. Seeing the videos of the actual pouring and processing certainly helped me make a better...
Tuolumne Meadows is the worst place I ever saw for mosquitos. It was early June and the Tioga Pass had just opened. Ground was squishy from the snow melt and the mosquitos were like a fog! Still love...
I guess that's true Leigh!
Here is one I did the other day - way over exposed. Hope to try again in a couple of days. Clear glass ambrotype, 12" Hyatt Petzval wide open, 10s exposure, ammonium thiosulfate fix
Still trying out a new LF lens with a quick setup of some cool old seltzer bottles and one with a few family keepsakes. 17" Voigtlander RR, wide open, CGA, B&S chemicals.
New to wet plate, this is about plate #7 that I have done. 5x7 CGA, Hyatt 12" petzval on Deardorff V8, natural light 8s wide open. Working on all techniques - there are pouring, developing and...
Thanks again all. I was able to break the front and rear elements free from the barrel, but couldn't budge the flange or the hood. Soaked the elements in warm water and dishwashing liquid then rinsed...
Thank you all. I will persevere to get it apart and reassemble it inverted as you recommend Tim. Steven, at least I was on the right table in the Voigtlander listing, I was looking at the portrait...
I just got (today) a Voigtlander Euryscop 5 and have a few questions for someone familiar with them. First, should the lens elements unscrew from each end like a typical lens of the era? Tried a bit...
That is a beautiful shot. I have seen several travel shows about your country. It is a beautiful place that I hope to visit some day. In the meantime, I look forward to your gallery posts!
Searching for dark box plans and ran across this thread. If you guys are getting together occasionally, I would love to come up sometime. I'm in Huntsville and just getting started in wet plate.
Beautiful plate Peter.
Beautiful ambrotype Alex! Having only done two wet plate photos, I love seeing how it's supposed to be done!
My first wet plate image just in time to join in on World Wet Plate Day. Clear glass ambrotype using B&S kit. Long way to go with technique and quality, but awesome to see the image develop and be...
I have only dabbled with a few pinhole cameras and shots, so I'm no authority on them, but google pinhole cameras. This link was quite handy to me: http://www.mrpinhole.com/calcpinh.php
Congratulation! May you have many wonderful experiences and photographs with it!
Nice, happy birthday Jack. Awesome to see you still enjoying shooting LF!
