Holmfirth 2011

On the weekend of May 28th 2011, Andrew Sanderson ( organised a photographers gathering in the picturesque Yorkshire villiage of Holmfirth.
During that weekend, I made a number of wet plate portraits of some of the participants.
The magical David Ellwand ( filmed me making one and created this wonderful video of the process.
Thank you, Dave.

Here is a scan of the portrait produced.

Other portraits I took that day included the following and all were shot directly on to 5x4 inch glass plates.

This was a wonderful weekend. Many thanks to Andrew Sanderson for organising it and making it happen.
