Love And War Wet PltateDouble Exposure

“Love And War” with Jill Rossi and Grace Gierke, a double exposure in-camera wet plate collodion photograph in the historic process of silver on black glass. I was inspired by the glorious work of Jan Saudek. I thought It would be challenging to attempt the illusions that he created in the darkroom with my camera.

Carl Zeiss Tessar 300mm lens, f4.5, two 11 seconds of exposures, 8x10” black glass ambrotype, natural light through Northern facing windows and skylights bolstered by continuous fluorescents at Nostalgic Glass Wet Plate Studio, Bismarck, North Dakota.
