I always have been fascinated by photography.
But with the introduction of the digital camera it all became too easy, too predictable …to me.
So I forced myself to go back to the roots of real analog photography.
Not just by making the photograph itself, but by controlling the entire photographic process.

This brought me back to the middle of the 19th century, to the amazing Collodion wet plate process.
And every single day I feel challenged to refine and improve myself.

Great article about petzvals Lenses

Dan Colucci, writer and owner of the great Antiquecamera's website, has written a fantastic article about petzval lenses.
It contains a huge amount of information about the history and design of the famous petzval design.
So a must for the petzval lover or user.
He wrote it for the 40th anniversary of the photographic Historical Society of New England
