Collodion Photography

im really excited about this process of photography called Collodion. in a digital world, its nice to step away from high resolutions and pixels for a moment. this 18th century style of photography is what you see every time you see a picture of Abraham Lincoln.
Roberts camera was newly constructed in the same way the original 18th century cameras were built. the lens is an actual lens from the 18th century that he found, of course, on ebay.
put an artistic format like this in the hands of a bunch of creative people and you get something extra ordinary.
