Here is the build schedule sent to me by Filip yesterday.
I am not worried about Filip delivering a great camera to me. Am pretty sure that is going to happen. What I am worried about is using this world class tool (largest camera in Canada?) to produce 35x35 inch ambrotype wet plate work way up near the Arctic Ocean :). Entering a new world here, a world I know very little of.
Am taking a huge chance on this, my experience in wet plate is very limited, I have never shot a camera over 14x17 (did that 2 times). I have never been North of Athabasca in my home province of Alberta. There are a HUGE NUMBER OF UNKNOWNS here, hence the gamble thingy.
I was once told by a beautiful person that sometimes in life you have to take a gamble, take a chance and see where that leads. I will have to believe in my own drive and passion for photography, I have to have faith in that going forward. It will lead me down the right path with this amazing camera. Remember every important journey starts with that first small step. I am doing that now, step 1 complete!
