    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...

I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

    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.
