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

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
