    20x24 Mammoth

    I recently finished a 20x24 wet plate collodion camera for a customer. Instead of loading this server with images, here is a link to the page on my site,

    Very Cool.
    What would be the working distance from the subject if you were doing a normal half length portrait?

    can you call a camera a work of art?
    A camera is only a black box with a hole in it....

    Wow, those people next to it must be awfully short.....a camera couldn't possibly be that big...(: I will have to say, though, that is the first "tripod" I've seen with storage! Amazing. I'd love to see Rob coat a plate that big!

    Rob, as I'm sure you know, a lot depends upon the lens. With the two we mounted on that camera, a portrait distance for a bust is about 4 feet away.

    Thanks all for the kind words. I have actually got to get started on another just like it heading to Kansas.

    WOW! Mammoth is right! I do not think this will fit in my backpack hehe
    I love the wilderness and I love my trail cameras, all Fuji's! :) GA645, GW690 III, and the X100 which I think is the best trail camera ever invented (to date).

    Ty's cameras are indeed works of art -- no question.

    When I win that lottery this week, this is one of the first phone calls I'm gonna make.
