As you may have noticed, we have a new site contributor at CDags.org. Please welcome Anton Orlov to the community!
Anton was born in Moscow, Russia and in his early years began developing and printing his own black and white film. In the mid-nineties he and his family moved to San Diego, CA where he attended college to study chemistry. He soon realized his love for photography and switched majors and earned a BFA from San Jose State University in photography.
In 2013 he learned wet plate collodion and has been perfecting his technique since. Daguerreotypes were always intriguing to him and he was inspired to learn the process. Last year he began working with the becquerel method and has recently transitioned into using mercury after seeing the difference in plate quality. He has been busy creating new images and we look forward to seeing future posts from him about his journey with the process.
