I have a huge appreciation for artists who are dedicated to reviving nearly extinct techniques, especially in this day and age. Daniel Carrillo is the one of those artists. A photographer and printmaker from Seattle, Daniel has taken over 100 portraits using a mid 19th century photographic process called the wet collodion method. The process is complex, incorporating several steps and requiring the subject to be completely still due to an extremely slow exposure. The outcome, however, is hauntingly beautiful. I encourage you to check out this video that follows the fascinating process from beginning to end!
so much depth. very beautiful.

INCREDIBLE! As an aspiring photographer, I have the highest respect for this. Very cool.
Wow, these are so beautiful! Especially haunting in the eyes… gorgeous.
The photos really are incredible. It is awesome when artists utilize “outdated” techniques. Love it. =)

what awesome photographs. agreed with the comment above. dated techniques bring photographs to a whole different place on a different level. i love it.

I have to admit I’m joining the traditional method movement. I love digital photography for many reasons but it’s teaching me an even greater respect for the craft and technique of traditional photography. The science of it all still blows my mind even to this day- physically capturing a moment on a piece of paper. It’s magic!
