I've been spending more time in the woods, taking photographs for the "Earth Magic" series. Wet plate collodion is a kind of ridiculous process - you have to coat the glass plate with collodion, make it light sensitive, shoot the photograph and develop it all within around ten minutes. So I've been lugging a bunch of gear into the wilderness and processing things in a cardboard box. One nice thing about this is having deer surround you - at one point as many as eleven were keeping an eye on me.
Long time internet friend Gea* visited last week, and we finally met in person after being in touch for at least 8 years. She went into the woods to witness the deer herself. I'm not sure, but she may have also taken a snapshot of me rolling around in a cardboard box on the ground, developing glass plates.
I'm still working on the "Symbiosis" series, and it's coming along very well. A few rolls of film were shot last night. I'm thinking that the series will be done before too long, though I know better than to assume too much.
