photoblog image Glasgow - University building

Glasgow - University building

 

Treated to an antique black and white makeover in Perfect Photo Suite 9 - Perfect B&W.  This particular style simulates an "ambrotype", which, according to Wikipedia: "also known as a collodion positive in the UK, is a positive photograph on glass made by a variant of the wet plate collodion process. Like a print on paper, it is viewed by reflected light."

 

The wet collodion process, according to the same source, was "a very inconvenient form which required the photographic material to be coated, sensitized, exposed and developed within the span of about fifteen minutes, necessitating a portable darkroom for use in the field."

I like this treatment very much, gives a rich feel to the picture.
what an impressive building this is.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Astird. Glad you like it.
The method is not nearly as difficult now. Good result.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Mary - yes, pushing a few sliders is rather easier!
I bet those pioneer photographers are green with envy
Tom Wilson: I think they'd be astonished by the present technology, Bill - and eager to try it!
Very fine building isn't it. I wonder what those original photographers would make of the way we do things these days.
Tom Wilson: As Bill says - they'd be very envious. The great thing, however, is that they gave us the models. smile
It's amazing how those early photographers did things. What would they think of Photo Suite...
Tom Wilson: Of course, if they hadn't done things their way, we wouldn't have anything to copy!
This info is interesting. Nice treatment too.
