Already experienced in making Tintypes and Ambrotypes, and ready to take your experience and skills to the next level? Or have you ever wanted to create your own large-format negatives, and print them on your own hand-crafted photographic paper?
Then join us and experience the beautiful and unique processes of Wet-Plate Collodion Negatives and Salted Paper Printing.
Many of us are aware of the unrivaled detail, tone, and ambiance that Wet-Plate Collodion "Positives" (Tintypes and Ambrotypes) render. Prints made from Wet-Plate "Negatives" do so even more. In this Workshop, the differences between the creation of Wet-Plate Collodion "Negatives" and "Positives" (Tintypes and Ambrotypes) will be discussed. The different collodion, developers (iron vs. pyro), and fixer formulas will be addressed. In addition, the process to make a Collodion "Negative," as opposed to a "Positive," will be highlighted, including exposure, development, and albumen subbing. Finally, the idea behind "Redevelopment" versus "Intensification" will be demonstrated and practiced.
Salted Paper, one of the earliest means to print photographic negatives, produces prints rivaling the richness of Platinum/Palladium. In addition, numerous colors ranging from browns to blacks can be achieved with various toners. Paper considerations, exposure possibilities (Sun vs. artificial light), toning, printing "difficult" negatives and hand waxing will be discussed, demonstrated, and practiced in detail.
Workshop will be held in English language. The workshop is limited to 4 participants.
