Wet Plate Collodion
with Christopher James
June 26 - July 2, 2011

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

This workshop offers photographic artists the opportunity to learn the beauty and complexity of the time-honored, wet-plate collodion process. Christopher provides a dynamic, hands-on, group experience in an energetic and supportive environment. Participants receive continual assistance and immediate feedback on works in progress, along with an open exchange of working concepts, ideas, history, and techniques. Demonstrations, and learning through repetition, success, and failure, are a continuous part of the workshop. A sense of wonder and a sense of humor are especially helpful.

Using Christopher’s definitive reference text, The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes, Second Edition, as our guide, we proceed to make wet-plate collodion ferrotypes. Christopher provides antique cameras and lenses to work with, and all chemistry, tanks, and plates are provided. We begin learning about the process in a dedicated Workshop facility and then get on the road to make wet-plate collodion images using outdoor New Mexico as our studio.

Christopher’s workshops are a lot of fun, so bring your sense of adventure and curiosity about this magical process.
