Delamere Forest – World Wet Plate Day 2012

Okay so its World Wet Plate Day and its also a Bank Holiday in the UK. Steph, Sue and Pat went off for a cycle ride while I shot some plates in Delamere Forest, and for a change is wasn’t raining….. but the sun was out, then it was in, then it was out. So exposures were a little bit improvised.

First a test quarter plate ambrotype. Dallmeyer Rapid Rectilinear f8 for 12 seconds.

Whole plate tintype f8 for 6 seconds.

Steph, Sue and Pat stop for a breather before continuing their bike ride. f8 for 4 seconds



These scans dont do the actual plates any justice, the main image at the top is great, the details always surprise me.
