Description this is from a 4x5 glass plate i coated myself .. it is what they used to call a 'dry plate' ( collodion was wet plate ). it was taken with a graflex slr like margaret bourque white had and a slow shutter speed. i coated the plate with liquid emulsion so it was very slow, around asa 1 ...the plate was left in the spring sun on a sheet of photographic paper. similar to the cameraless photographs i made, but i used a this glass negative instead. i scanned the image and made adjustments in photo shop, and added colorsthis is part of a 2 image series.
