More wet plate adventures

Had the chance to shoot a few plates a few weeks ago and just got around to varnishing them. This is a sunflower field about five miles east of the Mississippi in rural Adams County. I took these during our recent hot spell, and the collodion was acting really funny. I had a lot of peeling and never felt like the collodion was adhering well to any of the glass plates. I also had some splotches where it seemed to sit really heavy on the plate, which I hadn’t experienced before, either.
