My first wet plate!

My aluminum came in, so I shot my first plate. Pouring the collodion is going to take some time to learn. I don't have a proper silver tank yet, so I just sensitized the plate in a 5x7 tray.

This was just a test shot, so I just took a photo of a tree outside my shop.

Shot using Lea's Landscape collodion.

Today I went into the canyon to shoot my third plate. I had to make a darkroom out of a cardboard box and a tarp since you have to do the whole process in a matter of minutes.

I still have a lot to learn, but it is fun. It is pretty neat to use a process that was developed at the beginning of photography.
