Wet Plate Collodion Photography Workshop

Harvey Milk Photo Center Winter 2017 Term

Wet Plate Collodion Photography Workshop

Description:

This 2-day workshop serves as a hands-on introduction to this demanding but beautiful photographic process, invented by Frederick Scott Archer in the mid-19th Century. Participants will use large format period-correct cameras to explore the craftsmanship of tintypes and ambrotypes. The goal is to provide a taste of how the process works, with each participant walking away with 3-4 plates. We will be making photographs at/around the Harvey Milk Photo Center. Participants are invited to bring their own props, old costumes, etc. Note: Please bring aprons and work clothing (materials used can easily stain clothing). This course is taught by Allan Barnes, a former photojournalist who has been working extensively with the process for almost ten years.
