Baby Aria

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4201/34898314595_67c262dca9_b.jpg I made this 8x10 black glass ambrotype of an old workmate's baby on commission a couple of weeks ago.

Re: Already lusting after 16x20..

Yeah I would love to play with 12x20. It's such a gorgeous format for landscapes. Looking forward to seeing your 11x14 build. Maybe one day I can talk you into commissioning a stupidly big camera for me...
