I find it truly amazing how things were invented. Particularly, the science of photography. Especially all of the chemicals and light sensitive materials used. How was it discovered? Who thought to use red light to work in? It’s really quite interesting.
Well, the website Tested recently had a show in San Francisco where they went over some of the things they test. They had photographer Michael Shindler demo his wet plate photography technique live on stage. And who else did they have be the person in the portrait but San Francisco inhabitant and DIY maker extradoniare, Adam Savage.
