Wet Plate: Cat and Kerri

Along with the other work that Cat and Kerri did with me for my Black Silk Nudes project, we shot some wet plate that day as well.   The first one, below is an 8x10 Ruby Ambrotype.

Here's a photo that show the color of the glass...Ruby Ambrotypes are nice.  They have a nice warm feel in person, but if you put something black behind it, it looks like the above image.

The above image was shot on alluminum.

This one was shot on Black Glass.

I also had some fun with my Polaroid SX-70 and The Impossible Project's Instant Film, PX70 COLOR SHADE for the behind the scenes.


And here's a few of Kerri.  My favorite of the day was this one, below...on alluminum

The light was a 2K Arri with a silver card fill.  12 seconds
