Wet Plate Collodian Editorial Fashion Shoot

by JamesNYCJanuary 4. 2013 14:29

A week ago my friend James Weber did an editorial fashion shoot using Wet Plate Collodian process.

I shot video as well as acting as lighting technician.

This was a combination of Profoto studio strobes at around 9600 Watt seconds and ARRI's for an additional 6000 watts. This allowed for exposure times between 9-12 seconds for an ISO of 1. Not the kind of process for the feint of heart or those whose idea of shooting is to hold down the button as if they were making a movie and pray that you got the shot.

Great video and it's keeping the old skills alive... I would love to undertake a project like that; who knows, one day maybe Smile  

I do have to say though that it's not an environmentally friendly way to do things, huge power consumption and  potentially hazardous chemicals being flushed down the drains...
