    I think we all had a good time, and the world has a few new wet plate photographers!

    Had a wonderful time at the workshop. Mark and Garrett are very knowledgable in the process and just good people to hang out with. Their instruction will save me a lot of time and frustration when I start doing wet plate in the near future. Thanks guys for putting this together!
