Large Format Photography – Day 16 in the Netherlands

On the Tuesday I would meet Taz. He was one of the models that had responded to my casting call on Model Mayhem – where I asked for models and a creative team to shoot wet plates.  You can view his profile here. This rather handsome young man would travel down from Gouda to Deventer Central Station, where I was to collect him by car. Even though I have photographed many a person, and had photographed a few family members on wet-plate – I had not done a full model shoot using this process before.

Even though Taz was on time, his selection of outfits suited the occasion very well and I was as prepared as I could’ve been – the weather was not playing game. There were a lot of clouds with the occasional shower, forcing us to flee back inside. Towards the end of the day I had some pouring issues with the collodion, but thank goodness nothing serious – even though I did have some flaking issues again after the plates had dried. Before the end of the day, we managed to shoot some beautiful plates (for some reason, I really really love the image of his shoulder, on the right side of the triptych), and I can really see why most wet plate shooters are so fond of shooting portraits!
