18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mono Lake

Taken with the historic photographic process Wet Plate Collodion, this is a 8x6 inch tintype taken on site in Mono Lake, CA in 2018 I have taken on the process of wet plate collodion photography to challenge myself like the fore fathers of landscape photography such as Carleton Watkins and William Henry Jackson. I have a big admiration for them and the hard work it took for them to make a photograph of the land to share with the world.
