    Very well done Joe! I like the look, and that technique is really cool.

    At the end of the month we will be celebrating National Camera Day and will be asking everyone to share a photo of their Film Camera setup, either past or present. It will be great to see your setup in there too. :)

    The pose communicates a lot for this portrait.

    Where on earth do you find the props for shots like this? Do the participants bring their own stuff?

    Thanks all. I use an old Deardorff 8x10 Camera, with a French brass Petzval lens from the 1870's... The wet plate collodion technique is from the 1850's....
