Descriptionthis is photograph made from a hand coated glass plate .. i taught myself the craft of hand coating glass plates as a student in college 25+ years ago. i recently started to do this again, and expose the plates in a camera from the 1800s which was made for glass plate photography. the camera is called a 'cyclone #5 magazine camera' and can be loaded up with upto 12 glass plates. i processed the plates in a combination of coffee ( i roast the coffee myself ) and a very used print developer.this image is best viewed from a few steps back.
