I shot a cover for a major magazine a couple of weeks ago. Chris Morgan assisted me and poured all the plates since I only had so much time to take them. I was afraid the Hollywood celebrity would not want to just sit there while I headed for the darkroom to develop and we needed to shoot as many as we could in about an hour. The shoot went well and we got it done.
When we got to NYC the weather was really bad. Very hard rain and gloomy. It stayed that way till 2 hours before the shoot when it started to clear. When the shoot started we could see blue sky through the clouds. We supplemented with some KinoFlos and shot at about 6-8 seconds.
We shot at The Center For Alternative Photography in NYC in a brand new studio. I think I was the first to shoot wet plate in there. Thanks Eric!! The studio belongs to Eric Taubman. What a beautiful place it is! Fantastic skylight!!!
I can not say who or what yet but as soon as I am allowed to I will post it here.
Chris and I have worked together before. He also helped me with the Jack Daniels calendar shoot in 2005. We're getting used to clients telling us, too clean, more defects please
Not how I like them to be but when Im getting paid it aint so bad.
A friend of mine who also helped with the shoot and Chris Morgan in the studio.
