Last Friday, I had the pleasure of photographing the crew at Chrome Digital (located in as a big thank you for my first solo show! I was really panicking about the weather the day before because it kept saying it was going to rain and I dreaded having to deal with a wet darkroom, but the weather gods were on my side and we got a partly cloudy day with some heat!
The shoot went without a hitch! Before doing the shoot, I remade all my chemistry except my collodion. I was having problems with it earlier and all was added was some ether to it and cleaning off my pouring bottle so no dry bits of collodion doesn't fall in. I redid my silver and KCN bath as well as making new developer. Never once until I made new developer, I have gotten a good negative inside my darkroom due to not seeing very well with the safe windows from time to time. The image on the left is one of the negatives that came out stunning and clear! I was so happy that I made everything new, Here are my favorites from this!
Another thank you to y buddy Fernando for being my assistant!
