Still life


Last week-end I attended a wet plate collodion workshop in Slovenia and it was such great fun! It was run by Topshit Photography – and it was Topshit for sure. Wet plate photography is a far cry from ‘spray and pray’ digital photography. The result is also a far cry from digital images. It’s really magic to see the image appear on this large 10 by 12 inch glass plate. Still life framed by a window, simple and very different from digital imagery. Is it better than digital? Hardly, if you look for technical perfection. However, to me it is pretty pleasing.
