If you think your camera is slow, try this one, it shoots one frame every 10 minutes! That's because this is a 5 Min Portrait 1850's Style with Giles Clement.
Giles is a skilled tin-type / wet plate photographer who has honed his skills over many, many years.
I invited Giles over to the loft to photograph me with his 8x10 View Camera to create an 8x10 one-of-a-kind image.
With my prompting, Giles walks us through the entire process start to finish. You get to hear the history of Tin-Type Photography as well as how he acquired and built his 8x10 view camera.
We take you inside the darkroom to see a plate being sensitized to light. Once the image is exposed, we take you right back into the darkroom to watch as the exposed plate is turned into the final image.
This entire process is fascinating and you get to see it all unfold in this 5 Min Portrait, 1850's edition!
