March 1-2, 2008, Corona, California -
Will Dunniway, Instructor. Spring Collodion Workshop

Collodion Photography Cost $350 including lab fee.

The basic wet plate collodion course description

Students will learn the making of ambrotypes (glass direct positives) and
tintypes. (Ferrotypes, tin plate direct positives) Students are guided
through the process step-by-step from the mixing, pouring, exposing
and development of plates poured with wet collodion. The newest edition
of the manual, Making the Wet Collodion Plate in 16 Steps manual by Will
Dunniway is included along with all materials in the course fee. Students
will use a period 1860 field camera with 1860-70 lenses. Workshop
features 2 days of intensive hands-on training in the making of
ambrotypes, ferrotypes (tintypes), and glass plate negatives. Each student
will make and take home a self-portrait/still life tintype/ambrotypes. All
materials and equipment provided.

The workshop is not about the historical use of the process. It is about
the use of wet plate collodion in a contemporary setting. It just so
happens that I am an historical tin-typist with 18 years in the field doing
this wet plate process.

I use an original wet plate camera in the sun room so the the exposure is
a known constant. This reduces the time that each student needs to learn
making and exposing their plates. I do not require anything remotely
historical. I will also help you adapt newer 'view' type cameras with wet
plate backs. Given this, my equipment is all original by default. This is the
only equipment I use. My students have really enjoyed working with this
rare camera equipment . The look these old lens give is incredible. In the
end you will go away with a working knowledge of the process, not it's
historical interpretation.ill Dunniway's Spring Collodion
