Heres some plates I took before going out for New Years Eve. Steph was a semi reluctant model while I tried my new lights out.
Mostly half plates but the cracked one above was taken on the rodent bitten 5×7 camera. Shame I dropped the plate and smashed it as it was my favourite.
Times were around 10 seconds on not fast enough lenses. Light about 1 metre from subject. Dev was around 15 seconds and fixed in Rapid Fix.
Something I’m noticing is that the plates are drying lighter than when first dev’d/fixed.
