The other day someone asked if I wanted some uv-lights for wetplate and I said no thanks but then he offered to drive them here and I caved in. They are huge, it took all my willpower to get the lights up on the stand. Decided to test them in the barn to easier control the exposure. Started with a test shot on 10, 20 and 25 seconds. The final plate was 30 seconds. I’m really happy with the results, now I have to work out where to put the lights. Maybe I can treat them with my DIY tan from the other day and they will fit in better in the barn?
