Thread: Wet Plate image sharing, August 2020

    Re: Wet Plate image sharing, August 2020

    New image I made this morning - a 5x7 glass collodion negative.
    I used my B&J Watson with the f3.5 Voigtlander Petzval lens. Exposure was 80 seconds at f3.5

    Thank you very much, I appreciate it. :-)

    I belong to a local photo arts guild that is quite active, and since the pandemic, we have been making themed galleries on our web site. This month's theme is "Quartets". My current Quartet is going to be these 5x7 glass collodion negatives. The above image is the first, and this next one is the second. I am making one image per day over four days. I always set up the shot before the sun is over the horizon (which is about 6:30 AM right now) and I have time to make 2 plates before the sunlight hits the garden directly and the morning breeze starts up. These negatives require approximately 80 seconds exposure to make - give or take 10 seconds - using a Voigtlander f3.5 Petzval.

    I have made the third image this morning and I'm waiting for the plates to dry and then they will get scanned.

    Yes, very good and your notes on how it was done are very helpful!

    Another one of the Morning Glory collodion negatives, from yesterday. This may be my favorite so far.
    About 110 seconds using the Voigtlander f3.5 Petzval, wide open.

    This is from two weeks ago. I was still having various problems with the aluminum and I also had some developer issues, but at least I finally got a decent-looking portrait done.
