Digital Wet-Plate Collodions
This first new post is a set of images made during the Picacho Peak Battle re-enactment in March 2008. The images were made using my Canon 20D and later processed in Photoshop to give them the appearance of being made using the wet plate collodion process.
This first image was made of a young boy who was having his picture made by a photographer that actually WAS using the wet plate collodion process. Her exposure time was 6 seconds. Stands that held the head and other parts of the body steady were commonly used during that era.
