We are pleased to offer an intensive, 1 day accelerated wetplate photography workshop Jan 5th or 6th, (Saturday or Sunday), the final date to be determined by what’s best for the group. 

By the end of the day, you will have completed one-on-one instruction and hands-on practice that results in several tintypes you can take home. You will have enough background information and critical experience with experts to continue with your wetplate journey. All materials and lunch to be provided.

1. Historical overview and state of wetplate today
2. Equipment -- modern wetplate camera manufacturers, antiques, and DIY options. Lens discussion. Bath, darkroom, and darkbox preparation discussion
3. Buying and preparing chemicals -- lecture and demonstration
4. Portrait and still lifes using natural lighting -- demonstration and guided practice
5. Still lifes using artificial lighting -- demonstration and guided practice
6. Independent work and Group portraits

Location will be an intimate home studio setting, with ample photogenic opportunities.
