    Thanks Bruce.
    This looks like a great group of people. I'm excited to go check out all of the wet plate posts.

    Thanks again! I hope some of you can attend the symposium - it's our first one, but I think it's going to be awesome! We have people coming from AZ, ID, NV, all over - a very diverse group of people.

    Welcome aboard Quinn! I really really want to go. I have a 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 plate camera I'm restoring. I've gathered most the stuff for field work, just have to learn how to do it.

    I have a counter proposal for you. Would you like to attend the FREE LF workshop down at Zion Nov. 13-19th? I've wangled access to some places you normally won't get into, or at least get as free access as I have arranged. We have nearly 50 people going as of last count.

    Aggie,

    Thank you. See my note to you about the trip.

    Would you post a photo (or send me one) of your full plate camera? I'd really like to see it. That's a nice size, not too big, not too small. You can do some negatives and make nice Albumen prints with that size. My camera weighs 50 pounds (11x14) and I use a period lens (c.1864) Jamin-Darlot. It's great for the studio, but it almost killed me when I took it on the road. Check it out:

    I also have two period French cameras that I've shot once (too much $ to use them on a regular basis) and really love. The darkslide mechanism is so sweet on the French cameras. I like the lenses a lot too.

    Here are two of the pictures of the camera. I have a lens I need to pick up from Jim Galli, and I just won this on ebay.


    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWN:IT

    When I got the camera, the bellows are petrified. It had plate holders, but the new dry type. The lens board is small and flimsy. I would like to get some more substantial lens boards made. The finish in the pics looks better than it is in person. I will strip it and refinish it with plenty of polyurethane on the back part where the wet stuff will drip. The GG will be replaced as soon as I measure and send off to Sat Snow.

    There is also a 5x7 reducing back included with it. It definately needs some work.

    I was thinking of sending it to Star Camera after I get it stripped to have them modify the back to accept wet plate holders. I also need to get some good wet plate holders.

    If I am satisfied with the results once I get going, I will graduate up to a 11x14 camera. I just plan on getting it from Jim Chinn. His are very light weight.

    Any suggestions you have would be appreciated.

    Nice camera - and the lens you just bought - holy sh*te! That is so sweet!! You are ready to rock-n-roll! I hope you show us some portraits made with that lens - sweet spot! Thanks for sharing!

    If you need modifications, you have another option (other than Ray at Star) - I can hook you up, let me know when you want your back tweaked.

    You will be elated with your results (if you learn how to make plates the right way), I'll guarantee it

    do you travel to teach? I know I want to take a few lessons, and Kerik said he would like to learn more also. Maybe the two of us could find more who would be interested in our area.

    Wet Plate Lessons

    Aggie,

    If you have 3-5 people interested in wet plate, I'd be happy to teach a workshop there. It would be a great time!

    Thanks.
