Last call: June 5-6, 2010 â€¢ Corona, California - Summer Wet Plate Collodion  Workshop  Now only $300

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.

The cost of the workshop is $300. A $100 deposit check usually required to hold your place. Given the last minute offer, an email is all I need and I will send directions. The tuition is then paid at the beginning of the workshop is paid at the time of the workshop.
