This workshop is a two day intensive covering all aspects of the process from the history of Wet Plate Collodion to the inner workings of a view camera and darkroom procedure, led by Rhode Island photographer Brett Henrikson. The first day will be a walk through of the process at the Vermont Center for Photography. The second day students can bring in friends as models or set up still life’s and begin to hone the inner working of this beautiful yet complicated process. Students will receive individual help and advice during the creation of their plates. The basic movements and process steps will be refined as students can get hands on making their own Wet Plate Collodion glass plates.
• Students can make glass plates indoors and out using either a 4×5, 5×7 or 8×10 camera.
• No prior darkroom experience required.
• All materials are provided, besides the subject matter of your photographs.
• Generally students between make 4-6, glass plates per workshop and will leave with the skills to make wet plates of their own.
