Introduction to wet plate photography - Daniel Leocadi

Introduction to wet plate photography

Want to learn about a historic and rewarding photographic process? Wet plate photography is said to be invented by Frederick Scott Archer in 1851. This early technique involves several manual processes while the photographic medium stays wet. The end result is the creation of a photograph that is not only taken but made by hand. These original unique images have an aesthetic and level of detail that is breathtaking and can’t be created by technology.

This two hour introduction will give an overview of this process and a chance to be involved in making an image using a large format camera. This introduction serves as a gateway to a more intensive two day hands on workshop that covers in detail all the aspects of wet plate photography.
