Workshop: Wet-Plate Collodion


April 27, 2019 at 9:00am

This Wet Plate Photography workshop is for anyone interested in having a hands-on learning experience with one of the oldest and most uniquely beautiful photographic processes. During this course, students will learn the process of coating, exposing, developing and varnishing metal plates in order to walk away with a set of their own, self-produced, one-of-a-kind tintypes. Students will also learn how to operate large format view cameras and strategize exposure for a range of different subject matter.


Prerequisites: Basic understanding of camera exposures


Bring: Props and/or clothes for portraits and still life objects for photographing. Old clothes that can get dirty during coating and processing. Safety glass and respirator are recommended. We will provide gloves. Please bring water, snacks, and a brown bag lunch.
