I'm curious if you are fabricating your own plates the way Rene Smets
If not, is there a commercial supplier of plates there in Belgium that
you purchase from ?
Good luck with your Daguerreotype "printing" ; it's really a simple
matter and works
quite well whether you contact or project the positive. Notice that your
images will have a
"printed" look compared to the more dimensional feel of an in-camera
Most modern Daguerreotypes do not have this quality anyway; but take a
look at a good Daguerreotype
made during the '40's and '50's and you'll see what I'm describing.
all the best,
