Wet Plate Photography

Over the weekend my wife and I went to an photography opening at a local gallery, and my interest in old style photography was renewed. I always liked the look of Wet Plates and I wanted to give it a go myself, but I have never done the real thing. So, I went to google, and looked up a way to get the same feel in Photoshop (I know this is wrong, and people will be upset for this!). I found some really good tutorials, and started playing in Photoshop. I think what I came up with was something of a hybrid. The general look is of a wet plate is there, but it is modernized. I am really looking forward to continuing down this path that I am on. It is awesome how something so small can reignite a passion for photography, and make you look at the world different.
