Chemist doing chemistry

Today I had training session.

Sort of chemist doing chemistry, Swiss lady from Turku came to Helsinki to check out how wet plate photography is done in practice.

I also did learn a lot, like I should buy get mixer with magnet somehow. Also what I learned was, that vitamin C could be something to use to clean plate back. It was great opportunity to held this kind of event, even it for one people. Yet one thing I learned was using lights, one 3000ws flash head popped two times, with one supporting light with 4x150w+385w energy lamps were enough for exposure with aperture 5,6 during around 5sec.

Now I just need to build some permanent place for lights. chair and background. I could do this training more often, so fun it was.

Pictures from training to come later.
