I am addicted! Taking the “Back to Basics” course, I have learned how to take pictures with an old wooden camera and glass plate negatives. I LOVE IT! This is the retro look I have always wanted to achieve, and here it is. I have already ordered my ancient camera and will be offering glass plate portraits as soon as I get it. I also plan to set up my own artistic projects using this technique, so you can expect more from me this year. I am so excited. I have always been complaining and whining that I miss the darkroom, well guess what, I will be back in it again soon, yaay!
