    That's a great set of photos, how does the image appear positive in the developing tray?

    I hope I was paying attention, is it because the glass is painted black on one side? :) or does that just improve the clarity... hmm

    I suppose that's not the answer, a negative would be inverted - skin black.

    love this thread - and the whole "story" - from the camera, posing, the ground-glass shot while composing/focusing right through to the plate at the end of the line.

    Thanks for posting Dan - you've given me GAS to explore another technique. :oops: :$

    Very much appreciated Dan, thanks.

    Would love to witness the whole process for myself, but your shots give a great insight.

    That’s a great post Dan, fantastic to see the process from beginning to end.

    Like others have said another reason for buying more kit, time for a wet plate collodion workshop maybe? :D

    Cyanide in developer... er, considering what a clumsy wuckfit I am at the best of times, I'm out...

    I know how I'd end up... like poor old Sean
