Wet Plate Ambrotype Self

This is how I spent my Saturday this past weekend. I took a workshop with Scully and Osterman.

I made "my" first wet-plate image. But of course, the incredible Mark Osterman took the portrait, and while I poured the plate and developed it and so on, the fantastic France Scully Osterman was right there helping to make sure I didn't screw it all up. Both of them were phenomenal. So I can't claim this completely as my own because I had fantastic help all along the way. I highly recommend taking a workshop from them if you have any interest in this process. It was a day to remember and well worth the time. :)
