    New Portrait Thread - August 08

    Better late than never....

    (The idea behind breaking these threads into shorter monthly segments is to make them easier to search and easier to scroll to see the latest work.)

    Anyway, this is my Olympic Rowing photo....

    I've started a series of adults with their (childhood?) dolls. This is a half-plate ambrotype on black glass. I had a bit of trouble with peeling of the emulsion that day but I still like this plate. Two of my favorites lifted completely off though.

    I wanted to title this photo "In her bath", but I think "You are photographing me again?!" is more appropriate...

    Joe,

    That's an interesting idea and the medium complements it in a dark sort of way (and I don't necessarily mean literally). I hope you'll share more of them with us.

    hi all,

    i shot this at a wedding yesterday. i used my Century Universal 8x10. i did not pull the bellows out of the rear standard (DOH!) and they cropped my images! damn! live and learn! they should still be usable.

    11 1/2 inch verito about f5 or so. dark slide shutter. 30% less development in pyro hd.

    more to come. i am processing a few at a time to be sure my development times are okay.
