One Day - Introduction to wet plate photography 


Want to learn about this rewarding and challenging photographic process? Wet plate collodion photography was created by Frederick Scott Archer in 1851. The photograph must go through several processes while staying wet to capture an image. The end result is the creation of a unique image whose aesthetic and level of detail is breathtaking and can’t be created by technology. Learning the process of wet plate collodion is challenging and requires a good deal of patience to get results. What makes it even harder to learn is the amount of misinformation online that can confuse and frustrate beginners.
