    Andrew,

    Thank you.

    These are all in Nonthaburi Thailand. I am going on a 2 week trip further afield and will post some more soon.

    Re: Collodion - Wet Plate Images

    OK, here is a question for all you experts out there:
    In the plates posted, I got this weird foam-like affect in some shadow areas. I only get them at a friend’s (Mark Sawyer) house when we gather for a wet plate day. They only appear white my chemicals and ONLY when I make the exposure. Someone borrowed my chems and DID NOT get this effect. It happened a second time at a later gathering, again only in the shadow areas. Also, the plates stayed in the fix an extra long time in hopes of clearing this effect... no luck.
    When I make plates at my house, this effect does not appear at all. The only different chem between the two locations is the fix.
    So… any ideas what is going on????Click image for larger version.

    This image is from a wet plate collodion negative made this afternoon, on 4x5 glass, using Quinn's Negative Collodion and corresponding developer.
    Camera: Intrepid 4x5
    Lens: 105mm Schneider Xenotar f2.8, given to me by a friend because he didn't want to bother with it: the front element is badly scarred from abuses in its past. Still, under the right conditions it can still deliver an image. Also, the vignetting is because this lens is made for a much smaller format than 4x5 (likely 6x9cm).

    Mixed up all my collodion chemistry this morning and shot my first plates. I think I'm hooked...

    An 8x10 wet plate negative I did yesterday, using the Deardorff and the 12" Kodak Ektar f4.5 (not the Commercial Ektar). Exposure was 30 seconds at f6.8Collodion used was Quinn Jacobson's recipe for negatives, and the accompanying developer. View a much larger version here.
