Viola da Gamba

Viola da Gamba
I have wanted to photograph Mark with his Viola da Gamba for a while, not least because the lens used to make this picture belonged to his great-great-grandfather. The lens is a Voigtlander Euryscop from a huge projector, which Mark's ancestor apparently took with him on his travels to India. Mark has kindly lent me the lens for a while, since it's a good match to my full-plate camera.

Full-plate clear glass ambrotype. 5 seconds at f/5.6 in cloudy shade.
