Bridge over troubled water

Letchworth state park in upstate New York.

 

This is a (slightly cropped) scan of a 4x5" glass plate negative. I hand-coated the plate with a silver bromide emulsion at an Eastman Museum workshop. The emulsion is very slow (roughly equivalent to ISO 1.5) and only sensitive to blue light.

 

For more details, see my blog post about the workshop here:

The camera used was a Graflex Super Graphic with Optar 203mm lens.
