photography as tool

i'm slowing down and looking at what makes me happy. i would love to incorporate more of this illustrative style into the images i make.

click on the above title...a great site to learn more about wet-plate collodion.

new inspiration from the old world

i've been thinking a lot these days about wet-plate collodian images. these days, it is easy to shoot a thousand images in a day and have nothing of meaning to show for it. i'd love to get back to creating that one image that is a stunning work of art. i'm getting my old 4x5 out and dusting it off. am looking forward to creating slow portraits with it. in the meantime, i've been messing around with alien skin exposure to create a look of older imagery.
