Twin H Tree Farms

Back in October, I got to spend a bit of an afternoon out at the Twin H Tree Farms. It was a rare excursion off campus to capture photos of the farm to go with a piece highlighting research by a professor at the Indiana University O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs revealing a 40 percent decrease in Indiana Christmas tree farms since 2002.

Wet plate collodion workshop

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to do a two-day wet plate collodion workshop with the great Dale Bernstein here in Bloomington at the FAR Center for Contemporary Arts. I have always been curious about the process and came into it without really any prior experience. My background was much different than the other folks in the workshop. I walked away with a great respect for everyone who is able to create beautiful images using this process. It’s incredibly hard. Really hard. I made a few images (poorly), but really loved the deliberate thought process that goes into creating each image. It’s something that can easily be lost today with digital cameras. I’d love to give it another shot again soon although it might be hard to convince my wife to keep potassium cyanide around the house with a newborn.
