    Great start for this new born thread ! You made an interesting work with light making this clair-obscur contrast that in the end emphasizes your model's look, congrats !

    Large format photography is not only about size.

    Thank you, gentlemen! Blue eyes and wet plate just go so well together...

    Now that I have most of the dry plate emulsion techniques semi-functional, starting to work on raising speed. The latest batch is EI 1 or 2 or so, which is 2-3x faster than before. A quick snapshot from testing it this weekend:


    SNIV-013, High-speed emulsion by Robert Brazile, on Flickr

    Seneca New Improved View 5x7
    Wollensak 7.5" 190mm f/5.6
    4 sec @ f/22, EI 1
    homemade gelatin dry plate

    A mark and a fair bit of dust from improper drying (another plate fell over against it) but I'm happy with the results so far.

    Your dry plates are much cleaner than most wet plates, Robert! Nicely done, and a well-composed image to boot. The tilt of the road throws everything off kilter so well...
