19th Century Mobile Photography

Check out this amazing time-lapse video that shows a photographer setting up a wet-plate collodian, large-format photo shoot. The wet-plate process was state of the art in the latter part of the 19th century. Today a select group of fine-art shooters like Jill Enfield still use and enjoy it. The process certainly is a far cry from the immediacy of digital cameras! You can also see the video here: http://blip.tv/file/1710363
