Houston….we have a problem.

John shot a couple of plates during his last workshop that showed some peculiar results that were hard to fathom.
All of a sudden certain subject matters began to flare and show a weird effect. No matter what was changed, lens, lighting etc it still happened. John asked me to shoot a similar set up with my chemistry to see if his was the problem.

With Johns chems….

With my chems…

And after heating the collodion and silver bath on the hot plate…

Its got rid of the majority of the stripes/streaks but that flaring is still present. You cant see it on the GG screen. We need to look into this further, as my silver bath need major maintenance by now anyway, but it does look like the studio temperature (its very cold at the mo) might be an issue.
