Event description
Learn the techniques of wet plate collodion photography and create photographic plates like those of the 1850's.

About this Event

Students will make tintypes and ambrotypes during this hands on make & take workshop. Attendees should expect to make their own 4x5 plates during this introductory experience. Participants should come prepared to process photographs in the darkroom and wear clothing that can be stained . This workshop is focused on the experience of coating, developing, fixing and varnishing wet plate collodion images. No experience is needed.

We will also be incorporating studio lights into the 1850's process to add a modern twist on the traditional technique. Students can add an additional second day for studio access and shooting if they wish.

Students are welcome to bring props to arrange their own still life image.
