Welcome to LundPhotographics!
Thank you for your generous support!
And because of this, we have some wonderful news to share! We want to give something back to you, the enthusiastic wet plate community who've provided us with so much support and encouragement.
To do this, we've just made arrangements with Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine, to offer two $500 scholarship/prizes to be awarded by random drawing from amongst the attendees of their 2014 Wet Plate Collodion Workshop! Isn't this exciting?! The workshop will be held from Aug 17 to Aug 23 in beautiful Rockport, Maine. Full details can be found at the Maine Media summer workshop page. Sign up! It's sure to be one of the best things you've done all year!
Film holder modifications
If you're sending a film holder to be modified, don't forget to include your return address and the dimensions of the opening you would like. Avoid selecting Rite-Way, or wooden framed film holders for modificaton. Instead, select plastic framed film holders with a solid aluminum septum such as Fidelity, Toyo, or Lisco. These are much higher quality and perform significantly better. Thanks!
