I always have been fascinated by photography.
But with the introduction of the digital camera it all became too easy, too predictable …to me.
So I forced myself to go back to the roots of real analog photography.
Not just by making the photograph itself, but by controlling the entire photographic process.
This brought me back to the middle of the 19th century, to the amazing Collodion wet plate process.
And every single day I feel challenged to refine and improve myself.

the focal lenght and f-stop of a lens.
Of course you could mount it on a camera.
In that case it's quite easy to determine the focal lenght.
But without a camera it's also quite easy to measure it.
On important thing. If you want a accurate measurement be sure you
always focus at infinity!
