Here are three of my collodion plates presented as a triptych. I combined 18th and 19th century processes, in that the original images were medium format transparencies made with a Holga “toy” camera. Each transparency was then projected from a darkroom enlarger onto a prepared collodion plate. The back of each finished plate was painted black and glued to a sheet of black glass, then framed as a single piece.
It’s one of those things that my wife wants taken off the wall when I go on travel.

Actually you are combining 19th and 20th century processes.
Just a small correction.
Good catch! Thanks. That’s why I usually avoid “century” because I tend to mess it up when I use it! I usually prefer saying “1800s” to “19th century. I could edit the post but this is easier!

Nice image! That tractor sign is near Seneca Rocks, I think. Great place.
But does that mean your wife likes it or dislikes it?
That’s exactly where it is! She likes my work, but thinks the images are too creepy when she’s alone.
