I spent the weekend shooting at a small photo festival close to where I live in the South of France. It was in the middle of a heatwave which is not ideal conditions for Wet Plate and the temperature outside was about 35c and inside the portable darkroom it must have been 45c. This throws up interesting reactions with the chemicals but I was prepared for this and adjusted accordingly. The results are far from perfect but considering the heat and the fact that I was in a dusty field but I shot a few plates that I really like. Above an image of Marie Samantha Salvy a wonderful poet. There are also a couple of other new pictures in the people section of the website.
