RE: Daguerreotype Gallery
Thanks Jack. I do prep the plates myself - sortof. I buy polished copper,
which I cut to size and send out to be silver plated. Then the silver side
needs to be highly polished to a mirror finish before sensitizing.
The colors are not added, they are 100% natural. The highlights, when they
are overexposed, get a blue color. Works out nicely with the skies as they
are usually the area with the most blue light. When the snow turns blue it
looks less natural.

Greg. Cool. The site looks lovely.
Couple of questions . . .
1. did you prep the plates or are they purchased?
2. how'd you 'add' the colors
Again, a treat.
