    New plate from plate holder in a Bender

    A Bender 4x5 with a Primo plate holder and a hand poured Liquid Light emulsion made this image developed in D-76 for way too long because it was way underexposed. Nevertheless, scanners are wonderful.

    That's pretty cool, hand-making both the camera and the film. If you had also mixed your own D-72, you'd be almost completely off the grid. Well, almost. Lenses not so much...

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."

    Old camera

    Hi,
    The camera was bought already made but I did restore the Primo 4x5 I used just prior to getting it. And last year I took an egg Albumen class and made a pretty good gold toned one from a plate shot with the Primo. The frame was only $20.
