I was finally able to use my wet plate camera (a reproduction of an 1860′s 5 X 7 camera made by Ty Guillory in Texas) and the 1887 Voigtlander lens I bought to use with the camera. My subjects were my daughter, her husband and their two-week-old daughter (our first granddaughter). I could never have pulled this off without my friend, Jeff Schotland (Jeff Schotland Photo and Handmade Photographs). He was kind enough to allow me to use his studio, pour the plates and develop them, allowing me to just shoot. He’s the best.
