    Beautiful work, and thanks for the tips! I see you used a Petzval lens on some of your images. I'm looking to purchase one myself. Any tips on places to look, or is ebay really my best option?

    Lenses pop up where they pop up. If you don't know too much about vintage optics this forum is as safe a place as any to pick up a petzval. You don't need a petzval to make good work in wet plate, but they are fun and a little addicting. Price increases exponentially with speed and coverage. What size plates are you starting with? Where are you based, chances are there is someone within 100 miles of you who is making plates and may be a little further along than you who would be willing to spend some time with you.

    I'm looking to start with 8x10. I'm currently based in South East Florida, but still manage to come home to Minnesota in the summers quite a bit. I've been trying to research wet plate photographers in Florida, but haven't had any luck coming across anyone.
