In this lecture the artist/photographer Michael Schaaf will lead you through the wet-collodion process. He’ll discuss the history of collodion photography and its properties and practically demonstrate how it’s done; from the cleaning of the plates, coating with collodion, sensitising, capturing a picture, developing and then finally the varnishing of the plate with historic varnishes made of gum sandarac and lavender oil.

There will be time for discussion and to have a look at some of Michael's plates and prints. A must for everyone interested in historic photographic processes.
