Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
My picture touches four periods of photography: The sitter is David Burder, Daguerreotype aficionado, being photographed by Dr Guy Brown using a freshly made collodion wet plate in the camera while being captured on a digital camera by an attendee - my picture was from my smart phone. How photography has changed!
An absolutely great event and many thanks to all the organizers and presenters who's knowledge and skill was in abundance. There a real difference in the appreciation you have for these processes when you can see them in action. I should also mention the Wolcott & Johnson camera that on show by Roger Smith and the wonderful Bromoil preparation skills of the Preece's.
