10×10″ Hottiness & Darkbox in the Making

I know the size of the original plate doesn’t come across on a computer screen but I just want to share how awesome I find the size: OMG AWESOME! So…

First time for me making square plates which is kind of cool. Hasselblad superior King Size stuff 😉 Unfortunately they don’t fit in my scanner so I’ve photographed them with a Canon S95 lousy in comparison so never mind the qual please…the one of my brother looks way better in person (he does too).

Also, we’re currently working on the all new making of a darkbox so I can finally photograph the beautiful city of Maastricht for my Alexander Simays project. The box is ready, thanks to my wonderful extremely supportive boyfriend, and we’re now waiting for the black cloth to arrive. I’m really looking forward to that little gem because it’s said to be extremely thin AND light tight. I’ve ordered an extra piece to use as a dark cloth on my camera. My current one is rather thick and not light tight enough, a PITA that is. Below some examples of what the box will look like.

The table on which the darkbox will reside. This table fits on the cart for my bike so I can drive it all around Maastricht without it touching its soil.

Once finished I’ll post the exact specifications qua size and all that’s been used etc.

Good night 🙂

    • Thank you John! It’s just too bad the digital files are not at all what the plates really look like. I should buy a bigger scanner now :wallet screams: 😉
