Early Pumpkins

Quarter-Plate Daguerreotype
Iodine: yellow with red-edges
Bromine: red with slight yellow interior
Exposure: 1:30 minutes @ f5.6 (Zone V: 11.66ev)
Lighting: 8 x 55w Florescents
Development: 2:00 @ 176˚F

It has been quite a while since I have made any traditional Daguerreotypes. This plate--although underexposed and possibly under-quicked--is a great success, and hopefully the beginning of a new season of image making.
