Self Portrait, Black Glass Ambrotype
After a good week and almost 10 plates poured, I'm finally starting to get results I'm willing to post on Flickr.
This shot represents a lot of things I was trying to accomplish with my wet plate collodion technique over the past week.
Goal 1: Get a good, even pour with no streaks.
Goal 2: Develop in a similarly even fashion.
Goal 3: Varnish it so it looks like it wasn't done by a 4 year-old.
