Wet Plate Collodion Workshop
This is a hands-on, one day immersive workshop in wet plate collodion photography, focusing on creating Tintypes using 4×5 black aluminum plates. This magical process will be demonstrated from start to finish, then students will have the opportunity to create several of their own plates during the course of the day. We will utilize a still life and/or portraiture set up to capture images. No prior darkroom or large format experience is required to participate in this exciting workshop. All photographic and safety equipment will be provided. Please wear clothing which you will not mind potentially becoming permanently stained during the process.
Instructor Bio: Originally from Dublin, Shane O’Neill has been working as a commercial photographer for the last 12 years throughout the country and beyond. His personal work of wet plate collodion photography has gained him much recognition and several awards. www.sonphoto.com
