  1. Randomness

    by , 05-26-2008 at 06:07 PM
    I went for a jaunt in the countryside today, took a drive up to Harpers Ferry. On the way home, I stopped off at an antiques mall and found a lovely 1/4 plate daguerreotype for $95. No case, but the image, the mat and the glass were all in excellent condition, with the packet still well sealed, so no major oxidation or fading. I'm going to shop around for a modern replica case for it to better protect it.
  2. Wet Plate Success

    by , 05-26-2008 at 05:39 AM
    Well, not exactly, but I did give my wet plate demo and discussion yesterday at Artomatic. I used a box brownie for the camera, and coated my plates on some black glass cut down to the brownie's size - 3 3/4 x 4 1/2. We were getting the exposure pretty close on the third plate, but I ran out of developer. The bigger success was just being able to demonstrate the process, and have an interested audience.

  4. Quite a ride.......g*a*s

    by , 05-15-2008 at 05:32 PM
    So, I'm in Delaware with a LOT of females. My grandson and me are trying to make the male population seem significant and failing at it. Meanwhile the ladies decide to go to New York. Well rooms even in NJ are hideous and if I go it'll mean 2 instead of 1 so I opt out which gives me more time than I really want here at my daughter's computer.

    Meanwhile Gustavo is yakking about Plasticca lenses. It's his fault. I wasn't thinking about Plasticca's until Gustavo steered me right ...
  5. Converting RB-545i back for Fuji Quickloads

    by , 05-03-2008 at 10:59 PM
    Disclaimer: this particular operation was on my rb67-545i back. A 545 holder which doesn't already fit on your rb won't fit any better after this operation! This operation is to make it easier to use Fuji quickloads with your545 back.

    I have a Polaroid 545i back for my rb67, with which I have been shooting type 55. Now that 55 is leaving us and I have only a few boxes left, I'll just use my remaining 665 for the rb and run Fuji quickloads through the Polaroid back. Seems like ...
