The second in a series of unseen photos from YOGA The Secret of Life. This photo of Visvambhar Sheth was taken just before going on stage with Jai Uttal and Gaura Vani at the Ahimsa Yoga & Music Festival.

"Kirtan is the first music I ever heard. I pray it will be the last music, the last sound that I ever hear. My parents are practitioners of yoga. They are Hare Krishna devotees, so I grew up in this.Ever since I was one year old I was on a walking spiritual circus around India. My father managed a pilgrimage that would walk around India. They had an elephant, a camel, and a bull pulled cart. They would walk and every day they would stop in a different village and set up a stage and have a whole program. The villagers would come out and they would distribute food, speak philosophy, and have kirtan. They would set up a slide projector and show a movie of yoga, kirtan, and bhakti being practiced all around the world. My mom would dress me up and put me on stage and I would sing and dance.

Yoga is connecting to the place that is eternal. Everything is changing around us, but there is something inside of us that is never changing and that is constant. Connecting to that place in any circumstance, through movement, through breath, and through doing everything with consciousness, that is the essence of yoga." Visvambhar Sheth from YOGA The Secret of Life.

I had such a great time on the weekend making tintypes. Can’t wait to get cracking on a new project.

Another wash line plate. This was supposed to be a quick and easy shoot in my garden... I ended up with nine plates! The sun was on and off, and the wind was coming and going, and I found out that my year old plate holder leaks light. So yeah, not so quick and not so easy... But I think some of the plates turned out all right.

I was pleased to have the opportunity to learn about wet plate photography this morning (also known as tintype, or by its technical name, collodion process). As I understand it, it's the second oldest form of photography, invented in 1851. .
.

With wet plate photography you literally create a photo on a sheet of metal by pouring chemicals onto the sheet, letting them emulsify, and then immersing the sheet into a silver nitrate bath to make the chemicals sensitive to light. You then put the plate in the back of an old-school large format camera and take the picture. Then you take the plate back to the darkroom and develop it. The whole process has to happen before the chemicals dry, so you have 10 to 15 minutes, tops. You don't create a film negative, you don't use a photo enlarger. You simply create the photo directly on the prepared piece of metal.
.
.

Here's the craziest part... We were using the light of the overcast sky this morning to create the photo, which, in this case, meant I had to hold still and try not to move a muscle for a full 90 seconds in order to attain something resembling a proper exposure on the plate! Easier said than done, as I quickly came to realize. I've never been so aware of how often I blink! .
.

Btw, the chemicals used are only sensitive to blue spectrum light and UV light, which is largely why these photographs take on their otherworldly, ghostly hue. .
.

At any rate, I'm really jazzed about getting to see the tintype process in action and about getting to come home with a unique print of my own.

Thanks, Lori Oden!
