Wet Plate Collodion

Today, Sam and I completed the first day of John‘s excellent course in wet plate collodion at his studio. His studio is filled with a cornucopia of curious objects, large format cameras  and Victorian lenses. During the course, we made images on tin, glass and plastic. Wet plate collodion is fantastic fun as well as being a beautiful artistic medium. I can really recommend the course to anyone interested in photography.

Here’s a video of John at work from fab alternative photography site, Film’s Not Dead.
