Historic Photographic Process:  Wet Plate Collodion

Class Description

Participants of this 6-week course will be learning the skills necessary to create successful Tintypes and Ambrotypes.  This includes basic large format camera operations, simple studio lighting setups, black and white film processing and beginning darkroom technique.  We will focus on the history of the Tintype/Ambrotype Portrait and how it evolved along with the fascinating beginnings of photography.

Back to class safely – While we do hope to continue our in-person learning, please note that this learning experience may need to evolve to an online or hybrid learning platform based on the safety regulations and recommendations by the city and state.
