Self Portrait

Click to Enlarge

This is a Colodian glass negative portrait of me. This plate was slightly under exposed to create what is called an ambrotype. When put behind a black surface this negative becomes a positive.

This is Ashley sitting on a porch. This was my very first historical process print. It's modern day film printed on Albumen. Albumen is a process that relies on egg white to bond the light sensitive chemicals to the paper. Today they use gelatin. But back then I guess they weren't that smart...

This is from a series of Colodian glass plate negatives I produced while at school. This is a pair of Birch Trees outside the science building at Bennington.
The glass plate was printed as a cyanotype, which is the same type of process architects use to print out blueprints. Although Cyanotypes are usualy far more blue, I toned this image with something I can't remember, but it brought it closer to a brown.

Documenting the Horror

This is Hurricane Dennis. He came through the Pan Handle not more than three weeks ago. My dad and I were cooped in the house for about two days. It sucked. But I did manage to get a fun video out of it. Enjoy

A friend of mine wanted some footage of me juggling for a project he was doing, and I asked to have copies of the footage to make a funny little juggling movie. I hope you enjoy.
