It was a fun day trying to take my own picture. I had never tried it before and it was very exciting to end up with a plate of yourself after carrying out all the different steps. The eyes started to go all googley as it was almost a two minute exposure. Sometimes long exposures can be exhausting, but with the aid of a head rest the time can pass by relatively quickly!
I got to say that the old Thornton Pickhard camera really is proving to stand up to the batterings of wet plate. Cannot be happier with the results it’s giving me.
