Here we are, mid semester and it’s almost Spring in NYC. Yesterday we tested out the new 8x10 holder Colin adapted for us. We had a few scratches along the way to perfection but we are on the road to larger plates. This class works together like true collaborators. I love the tribute to tin foil, primitive art and surrealism, courtesy Effie and Dana! 

First plate at Cooper Union wet plate collodion class “Into The Ether”
Great students and wonderful results. Looking forward to a semester filled with their images!

Meet Patrick, an amazing kite surfer, athlete and all around awesome person. I had the pleasure of working with him last month in California at Rincon. It was my first day on the beach shooting and I was using my standard large format modern lens. However, I had also brought along a Dallmeyer 3D and whipped it out it for this last portrait. Quite an amazing difference between the the two lenses, don’t you agree?
