Some 25 members enjoyed hearing from Marshall, Gary and David last Monday night. It made for a good mixture of older and newer members of our society.

Marshall had some fascinating stories about his early work with wet plate photography, and suggested viewing this youtube video. Although the system is the same as what he was using, the sizes of the glass he used ran from 8*10 up to 24*20 inches.

Gary showed some of his images (a lovely example is shown here), and David illustrated his conversion over the last few years into more than just snapshots.

Thanks to all three for sharing their images and stories.
