Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Negatives and prints, is how collodion photgraphy started in the 1850's. The collodion negative can yield an incredible range of tones and dynamic which is perfectly matched by 19th century print out papers like salted paper and albumen paper. The tonal range of a well-made salt print is barely surpassed by any other photographic paper.
In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to make your own wet collodion negatives; coating the plates, sensitizing, exposing the plates, developing, fixing and eventually intensifying the negatives for a greater density.
On the second day we'll print our negatives on hand coated photographic papers. We'll start with salt prints but if you want and time allows, you can try Vandyke, Cyanotype or Gum bichromate prints as well.
Over the last years I specialized in collodion negatives, both wet and dry, and the pre 1880 printing processes (Salt/Albumen, Gum bichromate…), which I use entirely for my photographic work.
