I had a great shoot with Kevin King of RED Models.   Kevin came over to shoot some 19th century portraiture and also to experiment with my new ultra large format wet plate camera.  Kevin arrived in New York 2 months ago and has already been busy with castings and jobs since landing at RED Models.  I'm hoping these images add something nice and different for his portfolio.   Here's a few of the images that we shot...

Another plate shot in the BIG Camera.  I have to retool the darkslide somewhat as there is some scraping happening on the plate...top left hand corner there...hoping to get this worked out soon...

After playing with the BIG Camera, I went back to my trusty 8"x10", which always makes beautiful images... I want to thank Kevin for coming out for an afternoon of Wet Plate. :)
