Presentation of the Collodion Plates: Part 3
So, I did manage to find some time to and make the photos and publish them on here. This presentation is totally different than anything I’ve thought of before, only that my exam work has been finished this way too though with a different backing color.
I had a company cut 4 plates of black plexi-glass (perspex?) size 28 x 34 cm (the plates are 18 x 24 cm). I used u-shaped aluminum strips to attach the glass plate to the plexi-glass plate and used those same strips again on the back to attach it the wall. I placed the glass plates exactly in the middle of the perspex plate. Here are some images (don’t pay attention to the filth; didn’t have space to clean the plates today):
I actually like this quite a lot AND it was not that expensive either 😉 Anyway, off to start packing for France!!
Update 8 June 2010:
As requested a photo of the front, how the viewer will see them:
Side note: the photo has been taken outside with the plate flat on the ground. The kind of stains you see are the reflections of clouds in the plate etc. I was too lazy to use a pola-filter so forgive me 😉
