Hello, I am Jason Biehner and I have been interested in historical photographic processes since I was in school for photography in the late 90's.  After putting MY photography on the back burner for a while and even "going digital" the old process became more and more intriguing.  In late 2015 I took the plunge, bought a bunch of chemistry and started experimenting with wet plate photography.  To me, the level of detail and high amount of variables that can all affect the final image, as well as working with equipment and processes that are over 100 years old, mixing all you're own chemistry and creating your own film is a great way to connect with the entire process in a much more intimate way.  I think if you take a look at these images, especially looking at them first hand, you will agree that they are like nothing that can be created with more modern tecniques.
