Itís All Positive! The Wet-Plate Collodion Process Two Day Workshop
Instructor: France Scully Osterman
In this two day class, students will learn to make wet-plate collodion ambrotypes both in-camera and with an enlarger. The instructor will begin with a demonstration and then walk each student through the process to make a self-portrait and still-life using a large format period camera (provided).
Participants will also make ambrotypes and collodion photograms using transparencies, magic lantern slides or botanicals. Making collodion images without a camera is a particularly fun way to learn the process and gives participants a chance to play....(more on the site)

Date: Saturday May 31 and Sunday June 1, 2008
Time: 9am - 4pm
Cost: $350 plus $25 lab fee (Lab fee paid directly to the instructor)
She'll also be delivering an hour long talk at the opening reception! more details TBA!
