    New Forum--populate it!

    Based on feedback, we've added a new forum to support large-format wet-plate photography.

    Any wet-plate-related topic is welcome, but remember this is still a large-format forum, so please keep it to large-format wet-plate. This ought not to be too difficult!

    When discussing what might be included here, one person suggested these topics:

    1. Equipment needs, cameras and lenses. Making, buying, adapting.
    2. Chemistry, problem solving and techniques to store, make, buy, use
    3. Developing and finishing techniques.
    4. Results, show your work.

    We won't make these sub-forums, but we can certainly have threads that cover the basics of these topics. If those threads are sufficiently concise and helpful, we can make them a sticky to act as a guide for those new to wet plate work.

    As with all our sub-forums, they'll be what you guys make them.

    I'm only moderately experienced at this point, but I have the advantage of having recently made all the beginner's mistakes so I can help you with yours.

    This is GREAT news!
    I am new to wet plate collodion and have made 20 glass plate negatives so I am well into the learning curve and am having a total blast!
    I have learned a ton from both the John Coffer & Quinn Jacobson manual/book and videos .... excellent resources.
    I have viewed tutorials from Top Shit & Robert Bieber and found them very valuable as well.
    Basically, I am a sponge for all the information I can see, read, & digest.
    This sub-forum will provide timely and specific information via a group of photographers whose skills and willingness to freely share are second to none.
    Thank you to all who have made this happen!
