Adam and Amy wanted to make a few wet collodion images for their engagement session so they came by my studio in Denver, CO. Black glass is such an elegant medium to make photographs on which makes it a perfect match for engagement photographs. In about 2 hours we made a 8.5 x 6.5 black glass ambortype of each of them and one 11 x 14 of them together. The first 11x14 was a little over exposed so i wiped the emulsion from the plate are re poured it. In the image you see sweep marks of silver from where in haste I didn’t do as good of a job cleaning the glass as I should have. We could have wiped it again and re poured, but Adam and Amy embraced the imperfections and wanted to leave it as it was. Three plates down and we still had some wonderful evening light so we headed to a park down the street and snapped a few digital shots as well.
