Artist's Description

Black Glass Ambrotype
18×24cm

This one was a bit of challenge but great fun … I had to cross a field opposite my house, with the big wood camera and the massive tripod/stand; do the set up, composition, run back home, bring the white net, run back home again, pour the plate. Run again, to make the exposure.
In the meantime the girls are gone, picking up flowers across the field! Hoard the girls back into the frame… while my plate is drying fast… Do the composition, do the focus again…all right, now nobody moves …when I am about to load the plate holder a massive tractor is coming right at us … Move away (me that is, the farmer’s tractor trumps my camera!) Let’s do it all over again ….arghhhh … I finally manage to make the exposure … Run back home, into the darkroom … And there it was, despite it all, there was a picture …
