Old fashion photography

Today I was introduced to Victor, a gentleman who teaches alternative photography process – as in images on glass or aluminum plates. Before film, cameras were this large, and the image was made on plates instead of negatives. Victor told us that the camera was about 115 years old, and he was offering to photograph people for $50, which is his cost to get the image processed. The end results, as you can see lying on the base of the camera, were stunning.

This picture of Victor and his camera is day 139 of Photo 365.
