Historic process, modern problems

Recently I went ahead and started experimenting with wetplate collodion,  an early photographic technique dating back to the 1850s. The learning curve is steep, even as someone with a lot of experience with photography, working in the darkroom, etc. I have A LOT to learn still, but am enjoying the process.

  1. I really like how the objects all seem emerged, or drowned, or somehow floaty, there are times when it feels watery and times when it seems smokey or like fog, very dreamy and nostalgic in a surreal way. I love these first ones.

  2. I’m a big fan of ‘retro’ looking photography, these pics are great. One has to look twice to see that they aren’t originally from that period, which makes one think about what exactly looks modern and what ‘old’.
