Was wondering if anyone could recommend a good website or book on Wet Plate proc ess?

I believe there is someone in upstate New York who gives workshops, but I can't remember his name. thanks

I beleive the Keeper's of Light (out of print) give a short course on wet plate photography, also in the 40's version of Photo Index there is a section under Kodak which cover the making of wet plates. Pat

Get the book Comming into focus, it has a great section on wet plate collodion. I was thinking of doing this too, but after I read this section I threw a coin into a fountain and wished film does not go away, at least until I die...lol...

Mark Osterman and France Scully Osterman are your experts. Mark taught Sally Mann the process. They live in Eastern PA. (Bucks County, I think.)
