WORKSHOP I – WET PLATE COLLODION 101

WORKSHOP I – WET PLATE COLLODION 101

3 Days of  instruction by James Weber.

Class Dates Available:  

September 27th - 29th August, 2013. 

Wet Plate Collodion photography is the second historical photographic process, and is one of the last remaining photographic arts where everything is a hand crafted chemical/darkroom process.  In the class, we'll be making tintypes(on aluminum) and Ambrotypes(on glass).  In an age where everything has gone digital, it's nice to get back in the darkroom.
 
Day 1, Sept. 27th:  We'll cover a little history of wet plate, converting cameras, making chemistry, learning how to flow the plate with collodion,  and practice shooting/developing/fixing/washing.  Basically, we cover all the skills you need to get started doing this yourself.
 
Day 2, Sept. 28th:  With the introduction of the skills you need covered in day 1, day 2 is more shooting, plus we'll cover the various studio lighting options that are available to you, their benefits and difficulties laid out.
 
Day 3, Sept 29th:  On Day 3, the class takes a trip in James' RV, where we'll go on location to work on daylight shooting.  For those students that bought the three day package, they get to shoot one mammoth plate, 20x24.
