A Wet-Plate Collodion portrait of an ANGEL: my husband, Andy ❤️ This image was made using a large-format 5x7 camera, by coating a substrate with light-sensitive chemicals and then exposing, developing and fixing: on location… A far-cry from digital techniques: it takes patience and practice ❤️ This photographic technique became somewhat obsolete by the 1880’s ❤️ #wetplate #wetplatecollodion #collodion #collodionprocess #collodionwetplate #altphoto #altprocess #makeportraits #makerealphotos #handmade #silverandlight #darkroom #analogue #laurapetersphotography #5x7 #lacock #lacockabby #largeformat #1880
