What can I say, Roarie Yum is one of the most unique models I've had the pleasure to work with.  She has such passion for what she does and an amazing ability to speak using just her form.  Graceful and soft in one breath, powerful and strong in the next.  It was a wonderful experience.  I was lucky enough to have gotten her while she was in New York.  She travels the world extensively being the muse for many an artist.  Thank you for giving me an evening of your time, Roarie.  It was truly a pleasure.

We started off the night shooting a few Tintypes and Ambrotypes.  

This is a view of the ground glass as I was focusing.  In large format photography, the image is always inverted vertically and horizontally.

We had enough time for one more plate...a more classic nude.

As Wet Plate takes a lot of time, the Wet Plate part of the evening had to come to an end.  Roarie only had a limited amount of time that night, we moved on to shoot the figure studies and a few of Adrina's beautiful pieces.
