Wet Plate Collodion from 35mm Slide Film

I am still in the midst of experimenting with making wet plate collodion images using 35mm slide film. I made some portraits of Kathleen on her wedding day with 35mm slide film in the hopes that I would be able to use an enlarger to expose them onto aluminum or glass plates. I used an Aristo cold head enlarger with the aperture all the way open. My exposures have been around 90 seconds to 3 minutes. So, here are a few results. I know, I know…those wet plate aficionados¬†looking on….I realize I have some chemical and technique issues to work out.
