    I don't feel so bad spending $4 per sheet of 8x10 film. Ruhter was spending $500 per shot. Not to mention the extra gear to cut the metal plates and the gigantic van to do the shooting. His photos are totally real, one of a kind.

    He fell, but he never lost the sight of what he visualise. This is really something he overcome because he believes rather than look at others and wow. Admirable!

    So inspiring! I really HAVE to find time and try it SOON!

    Have a look at this also: The Three Graces - very nice, though on a smaller scale. A bit.

    fantastic!! I also love the "Breaking Bad" theme during the opening of the video... wonder how many times he has been asked what he is "cooking" in that truck?

    also found this which is fun too: http://vimeo.com/14840600

    I saw a post in a Linkedin group about "traveling with a 100 year old Mammoth view camera creating 20x24 inch black glass ambrotypes". I was impressed and wanted to share it with you folks.

    They made a nice film about their work process and posted it on vimeo.com. See:
    https://vimeo.com/48538250
    Their website about their Execution Project with more info and nice examples:
    http://linkedringphotography.com/execution/
    They make also tintypes of insects, etc.
    And the link to their original post on LikedIn:
