Tintype World - pouring salted collodion on plates

Creating collodion wet plates needs a lot of dedication and patience. But it is also for impatient people, because you see the result after about 10 minutes. It's like the polaroid of analog photography with hours of preparation and years of learning. And just in the moment when you think you figured it out, the process will teach you different. Because there are so many variables that affect the outcome, a lot of wet plate artists are control freaks :)

    This portrait of Lara Ješe (she is an amazing artist) was the only wetplate portrait I did during the collodion expedition of Borut Peterlin. Lara and myself took a lot of time to find the right place and pose for this plate. I enjoyed it a lot to work with you! And I am also very happy to announce today, that Lara joined my inspired series. A car full of gear, traveling 400+ kilometers for one portrait? Yes I would definitely do it again!
