    Damn, talk about a missed opportunity.... were you seriously trying to cover the events professionally? Why were you there other than coincidence?

    No, not professionally! If I was doing that for a living I would definitely be using digital or 35mm. I'm an election specialist and was there (professionally) in that capacity. The camera was just for fun, kind of like hunting with a bow. It was hilarious fun to run with the journalists, holding my camera over my head, and blasting off one shot with my cable release...

    Here is one more. Scan of a print I just made. This is my favorite of the hand-held black and white 4x5s. I may have a nicer transparency, but will have to wait until I get the film scanner working again before I can scan those.

    Elliot has PDD (NOS) or Pervasive Development Disorder and suffers from Epilepsy. PDD is most often recognized as a branch of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) that requires specific care. He has a personality like no one else…I met him when he threw a stuffed penguin named Pingu at me

    Elliot finds it difficult to sit still sometimes and when we worked together in the studio trying to get this shot it was challenging to say the least. Wet plate photography is a process that takes time and Elliot likes to move around. He often stands and flaps his arms when he’s excited…like when he goes and watches the traffic lights change colour with his dad. We had Elliot sit and place his head against a head brace so I could quickly focus my 14x14 camera. We then let him entertain himself with his IPad and the amazing ‘Talking Carl’. I sensitized a glass plate and gave up trying to check focus. I simply loaded the plate while his mum held the IPad next to the lens, prayed Elliot had his head against the brace and exposed it with 6000w/s of light. Then he laughed…and asked me to do it again.

    It took several plates to get it right.

    This is Elliot and his lucky elephant. An image of a wonderfully perfect boy that unfortunately people don’t always see…I guess we just don’t look hard enough sometimes…

    Perhaps my eight or tenth sheet of 4x5 shooting ever. Arista EDU Ultra 100 ... HC-110 ... Crown Graphic 135/4.5 Optar (recently treated with some balsamic vinegar which did a lovely job of eradicating some nasty fungus). Processed in my new old ($25.00) Uniroller/Unidrum (how do you get them to stop leaking???). Never used HC-110 before. Never used the Uniroller before.
