There are many, many processes in the world of Wet Plate Collodion photography and at every stage there are potential disasters lying in wait. It’s the exact opposite of iPhoneography but just like iPhoneography it is a means to an end. Great images, great art.

As a small boy in the 70’s I once spent a day out and about shopping with my mum dressed as Dr Who. Well, actually it was Tom Bakers Dr Who. I was probably around 10 or 11. I didn’t know it then but that was my introduction to Cosplay.

So I have plans for some photoshoots this month. Quite a lot of ideas actually. Of course as is the way with me i wonder whether my ideas are beyond my capabilities. So, in order to make sure I don’t waste a pile of money hiring locations and models I decided to try out some […]

I have been asked in comments section on original post about “the girl who likes hats“, how I took and post processed the images. So this is a very short piece about that. First off. My mum is old and frail and can’t stay standing for long so I had to use a comfortable low […]
