After a delay of posting and much time spent learning more about collodion photography and albumen printing, here is our most recent endeavor. A friend stopped by and wanted some photos done with collodion. This image was exposed at 9 seconds using a Dallmeyer 3B at f/3.5. The lens is roughly 130 years old. The image was shot on black aluminum, similar to the original tintypes used during the height of the collodion process (1850-1890s).
