A few weeks ago Shane Balkowitsch invited me to his beautiful studio for my first Wet Plate Portrait. Following my session I took a few minutes to photograph his studio with my own film camera, a Contax 645. Thank you Shane for sharing your talent and allowing me to take some of my own photographs.
