Fabulous portrait...it's incredible what the early photogs did in order to record their images in the field. Having used a view camera quite a bit I understand some of what they went through, but luckily I didn't have to coat plates and develop them outside, at least!

That's a really nice shot and I like the sepia toned effect for t his one - works perfectly. The earlier link was apparently left by my wife, by the way.

Thanks for looking, and leaving a comment, wodenite and vicopper. The early efforts of Brady mark the beginnings of photodocumentary, a form of news gathering we now take for granted. The camera in this image is a 1868 version of the 1863 camera that Brady actually used in the field.
