    Wet Plate Image Sharing, June 2020

    Lets start a thread for sharing wet plate collodion photographs.

    This is from a wet plate negative made with a Kodak Box Brownie #3B. I cut 1.3mm thin glass to fit the Brownie, and when using the smallest aperture on the little pull tab behind the lens, this simple meniscus performs surprisingly well! (Honest, I made this with a Brownie 3B!)
    The exposure was 6 minutes in bright open shade, and even then, the negative needed a bit of help so I redeveloped it using the Iodine redeveloper process, which added about 1.5 stops more density. It will probably make a beautiful albumen or salt print!

    Paul, it's a lovely photo, but what strikes me more about it is how clean your technique is.
    It's also got quite a dynamic range of tones for a wet plate.
    Superb start to this thread!
