    Stunning portraits and nude photography made by  Kristen Hatgi using the collodion photographic process. The divine surroundings in which Kristen captures her photos combined with her models’ sensual and theatrical poses really breath life back into this century old process of making images.

    This photo (by Vladimir Tolman) was taken in 1930. Women's natural legs--never seen in magazines anymore--are so beautiful. // How sad that today these women would be considered fat :(

    Jody Ake creates portraits, nudes, still lifes and landscape images, using the wet collodion process,an historic photographic technique Invented in 1851. The method entails coating a glass plate with collodion and exposing the plate while it is still wet. Ake is one of a handful of contemporary artists who have revived this photographic method, hand-mixing the chemicals for each and every exposure.

    Portraits reflect the expression, appearance and dynamism of a person, also portrait photography could capture people's soul. Its not about experience or your style, It is about how you capture them in a way that reflects their personality as natural as possible.
