Silence (great band) – Wet Plate Collodion portrait

with 2 comments

20120810 scilence band by

In last issue of Mladina weekly it was published my portrait of Silence band. I had this idea for a while, but some people were not feeling comfortable with it, but on the contrary with the duo Silence we had a good laugh and the result overpassed my expectation. My collodion needed a two pops of 2250Ws to illuminate it correctly, that is why Primož on the right side is a bit blurred. Later I find out that it could be done in one pop if I would raise pH of AgNO3 from 2,2 to 4pH as I did later on and described in THIS post.

Techs: ShenHao 4×5″, lens Linhof 135mm f/3,5; Flashes of 2250Ws – two bursts, AgNO3 pH 2,2.

  2. Oh, really! I didn’t know that. I thought just the opposite, that’s why I was tagging as crazy 🙂
    Thank you Marie!
    PS: I’m scanning one of my best images. Yesterday I’ve made a snapshot with 4×5″ camera! Oh, so excited to share it with you and others!
