Whilst we were under periods of looser Covid restriction during 2020 and 2021 I had a project photographing the local cemeteries near where I live in Edinburgh. It was an opportunity to make many test exposures as I honed my emulsion making skills. But somehow the project petered out. I was using my Wista 45D camera with 4″x5″ plates. I then scanned them and inkjet printed on various kind of paper. There was something unsatisfactory about the hybrid workflow and I moved to making larger plates and printing them on salted paper or with argyrotype. Of course Covid also became less of an issue so we were free to go further a field. That’s not to say I won’t revisit this way of working in the future. But I totally forgot to share anything from the project outside an Adobe Lightroom gallery. Here are a few of the photos from that time.
