ambrotype portraits
Project info

I learned the technique of wet plate collodion by myself in 2013. \ambrotype portraits\ was produced about one month during the same year, as chose for this project to made portraits of people, quite different from casual everyday mass. These persons live in my home town, Sofia, Bulgaria, some of them are my friends, some I met for the first time, but during the shooting process and waiting to sensitizing the collodion emulsion each one of them shared a personal tale.
Portrait photography is a very intimate moment between the model and the photographer, especially when the model is involve in the photographic process through its peculiarities. This was conducive provocation for me which upgrade my skills as a photographer and my ability to understand and communicate with people through photographic medium.
Thank you so much to everyone who so generously supported my first ambrotype project!
