Last month, my friend Cadi Storm was asked to pose for wet plate photos by Armando Espinoza and my friend Kim and I joined her. A quick note about the wet plate collodion process: it was used during the mid 1800’s using a wooden box camera, you have to stand perfectly still for ten seconds, and it can take a million tries to get the shot you want due to all of the variables. Armando’s camera is actually from 1906. It was amazing to see the pictures develop slowly before your eyes as all of the chemicals reacted. I feel so lucky to have experienced it. Needless to say, this was the coolest photo shoot I had ever done. Below are some of the photos, He also took digitals. Enjoy!
All The Best,
