Wet Plate Collodion with Almudena Romero – Saturday 20th July



We’re delighted to have Almudena Romero with us on Saturday 13th July for this very special wet plate collodion workshop. Master of her craft, Almudena will work with you to create beautiful portraits on glass & tin whilst taking you through the process step by step.

This is the only one day course in London that covers tintypes (wet collodion on tin) and ambrotyes (glass). We will do as many as the time allows.You can bring your own models from 2pm onwards. You can also bring objects, backgrounds and anything you might wish to have in your photographs. We can also do self portraits.  I will give you a handout on the day but you can always get back to me if you have any questions. The course is designed so that you feel confident to work independently afterwards.

The workshop will take place at Bright Rooms, 11am – 5pm, Saturday 20th July

Please wear comfy old clothes, because the process is physically demanding and may also stain your clothes. (We’ll give you plastic aprons, but just in case).

Discovered in 1851 by Frederick Scott Archer, the Wet Plate Collodion process allowed the first glass negatives and the consequent reproduction of one same image on various albumen prints. With shorter exposure times and lower production costs, this process, was the most popular photographic technique between the 1850s and the 1880s. Learn how to print on glass and tin using this historically significant photographic process.
