New level of my Wet Plate Collodion portraits

with 4 comments

Yesterday my family had a family lunch and a celebration of my father’s birthday, so I used this opportunity to make a new set of family portraits. Recently I reset and readjust my chemicals, so I was anxious to see how my pictures will turned out and here they are!

Technically I used Palubel 5×7″camera with Voigtlander Heliar 300mm f/4,5 lens at aperture 6,7 and illuminated by one flash burst of two flashes of joined power 2250Ws. Flashes were about 90cm away from the subject.

This plates along with others will be exhibited in Kulturni dom, Gorica in Italy. The opening will happen on 29th of September 2012. You’re invited.

  4. Thank you guys! Yes, Collodion is super sharp medium, but because it’s about 200 times less sensitive then normal film, people usually move, so pictures are unsharp. If illuminated by flesh, then everything is crisp sharp. Not to mention superb glass!
