*Really* Large Sensor Photography
« on: April 03, 2012, 12:53:30 PM »

Ian Ruhter decided to do massive wet plate colloidon images. They are quite beautiful, and especially when you look at the last one, they have that elusive "3d" quality so many photographers are chasing. 500 bucks just to take a single exposure though... ouch.



Cheers!

in this digital age there are still photographers practicing the path  where photography came from. kerik kouklis also does wet plate. i don't believe to that size, others are doing tintype, of course platinum and palladium. some are using digital negs and some do not. i guess we will have to consider silver printing as alternative photography in the digital age. i thought that 24x36 wet plate image was not only a great image but the time and effort to produce it showed an artist who would let nothing get in his way of his vision.

I really feel for the guy when he just cannot seem to get the images to come out while in Yosemite. I suspect he would have produced something gorgeous there.

Very awesome and comforting for someone who still shoots film.
Theres more to technique than just technique.
I will sleep well tonight.

People who think that this is extraordinary have never seen the works of Chuck Close or Sally Mann. No offense but this video is just a sad stereotypical oversimplified insight of the work of one artist using every clishe out there. People who make movies like this live in fantasy land where every man has to be a hero and concur the universe. They have no knowing about the history of the medium they are filming nor do they know anything about the photographers or how they work. There are so many good documentaries out there about really good artists. I'm not saying this guy is not good but the way he is portrayed... sorry, thats just sad.

No offense towards the person who posted that. It's just my opinion and I'm not expecting that others will share that.

i know nothing about the chemistry of wet collodion printing, but in this video it seems to involve considerable toxicity with copious spillage of same into the environment.

reminded me of an episode of Breaking Bad
