“The Balkowitsch Family”, captured in the historic wet plate collodion process of silver on glass. My gang for life. It has taken me 2705 plates to get to this point over 5 years. Thanks to Troy Balzer for taking off the lens cap for our long family exposure.
8x10” black glass ambrotype, f4.5, Carl Zeiss Tessar 300mm lens, 12 seconds of exposure, all natural light through Northern facing studio windows.
