Wet Plate Collodion

Wet Plate Workshop, June 2017.

Was very fortunate to have another go at making wet plate collodion images yesterday. Spent a beautiful day by the harbour in Dunbar, Scotland, with a few other photographers, at a workshop run by Alastair Cook, making 4×5 and 10×8 tintypes.

I managed to miss a section of one plate with the developer, scratched that same plate with the dark slide, and underexposed both plates (apparently I count fast!) but still, a lot of fun was had, and the more times I try this process, the more I want to do!

Here’s a 10×8 tintype plate from yesterday.
