Under pressure….

Test shoot to assess lighting with the Interfit heads.

f4.5 lens still needs 20 seconds. Mind you the collodion is getting on and pushing six months old so sensitivity is dropping. Must order some more collodion and some dev before the weekend.


This shot was my first taken on black glass. Worked out about £2.50 a plate. Not the cheapest substrate I must admit. But I do like the blackness of it. In my eagerness I just cut the plate and shot it. No burring, cleaning or egging of the edges. Surprised it didn’t just lift straight off.
