“Emrys” tintype 18 cm x 24 cm

Emrys, is a wonderful ‘sitter’. I guess he’s used to it, but he still manages to not overpose, or get bored. This is one of the of 20 plates that he posed for that day. He held track of it and aimed for a (new) world record!

European Collodion Weekend 2014
Again it is time for us all wet plate nerds to gather around the fire (lit with collodion of course) to have a good in depth conversation about our chemistry, our mistakes and successes. Of course in relationships like these, there is a moment for booze, for frustration and relief (always when the group picture is done). A hello, a hug, a kiss and goodbye again. Until we meet again folks! Thanks!

Deadly Nightshade
‘Nachtschade’ (nightshade) is known to be deadly. These musicians ask the impossible from you: a shoot at cafe De Richel (Nes Amsterdam, probably the smallest, most unreachable street in town) and before you could say no, you’ve been working on their album cover for hours and hours, smoking 50 cigarettes in a row. But you will be rewarded with a sincere smile, music & on-demand poetry and… a lifetime being on their guestlist. Thanks Maarten, Bram, Guy and Reid.

“Jeff” tintype 13 cm x 18 cm

Jeff
This year already is full of unexpected encounters. This is Jeff from North Carolina, US. He came by to check us out, because he was around due to a pinhole gathering. The thing is that Arjen tends to shoot everybody who is enthousiastic about photography. And despite the pile of varnishing I have to do afterwards I love that habit.

The Light Recordings: Chapter 1; Coffee - 6'32"

‘The Light Recordings’
Chapter #1: Coffee : Caffè Sotto 6’32’’

‘The Light Recordings’ is a series of artworks and installations about recording time and compressing it in a single or a series of images/objects.

Chapter I, ‘Coffee’, is where we record different brewing methods with Wet Plate Collodion technique. One record has a shutter time as long as it takes to brew from start untill end. Caffè Sotto 6’32’’ took us 6 minutes and 32 seconds to shoot and brew.
In collaboration with:
www.coffeelab.nl

Special thanks to:

A framed fine art repro of this tintype is now ‘on the road’  with the Coffee & Arts project (http://www.coffeeartproject.com/Amsterdam/Gallery.aspx)

“Ron” tintype 18 cm x 24 cm
We, as collodionistic freaks, have (secret) gatherings. Fotografica Fair in Nieuwegein is one of these moments where we meet our fellow lens hunters, collectors and other interesting people (not so secret). Last March we did some demo’s with Alex Timmermans. For that we used Alex’ Dallmeyer 3A to ‘shoot’ some visitors (which were not so many, as it was a perfect Saturday for the first BBQ of the year). This is one of our favorites plates that day. I love the way this plate appears simple & clean but still friendly and soft with a bokeh that makes me drool.

Caffè Sotto: the maker
This is Mike, the brains and designer behind this lovely machine. Not only is this machine a joy to look at, but it makes a perfect ritual and a very nice and subtle coffee at the table, if you like. It’s produced in our own little country (Netherlands), but inspired by the social aspect of the Italian coffee culture.
Thanks Jeroen (www.coffeelab.nl) & Mike, for sharing this beautiful design with us, and Mike, for the privilege to shoot you a portrait.

Need we say more?

Maybe it’s nice to say that we tried to make the shot of Alex look like an old tintype of is great grandfather.
And Barbara, we only need few lights to enlighten half of her face to see what a beauty she is!

“Krizzle” black aluminum tintype 13 cm x 18 cm

Daylight, a bearded director, full of thoughts (probably about his first full length feature ‘The Right Juice’) and some chemical problems (not the guy, but us having difficulties to get fogg-less plates)
