    I came across some of this gentleman's work this morning and thought I'd share the link to his site.

    The technique he uses is probably old hat to a lot of you, but it was new to me and I really like the effect - particularly when he has the subjects of his portraits holding up the ambrotype images.

    Cheers, Jeff

    Interesting style but after I'd seen ten I lost the will to continue. The 19th century photos using the process are well worth a look.

    Wow, 16x20" - that's quite a format. I'm a big fan of that look but it's half the medium and half those old aero-lenses.

    After making some vandyke prints from 5x4 negs I've found myself more interested in these alternative processes. I have to say I do like the images where the subject is included iwth the glass plate. Thanks for the link.
