I have a new member in my family.
Sid came to me one dark moon lit night, as I walked among the cold stones in our local graveyard.
His grave no longer suited him, his stone had been broken. He needed a new place to stay. We struck a deal.
He would be welcome at my place. In exchange for rent, he would sit for me in collodion wet plate projects I have planned.
When I told him about future collodion projects, he seemed quite comfortable with the idea of wet plate.
He asked why we were still using collodion.
I told him, "It's a bastardly thing we do, and you'll come to love it".
Apparently, these up coming projects are not to be his first time in front of a wet plate camera.
Haaa, He was confused when I did these test shots of him with my Hasselblad. He was quite taken with the new technology.
Please do use the link to see the full images of Sid. I look forward to working with him. Enjoy!
