Workshop // Wet plate photography

Workshop // 2 to 7 pm

This afternoon we welcome you to go back to the roots of photography and delve into the magic of the 19th century tecnique of wet plate photography with the professional photographer and board member of Dansk Selskab for Fotografi, Henrik Wichmann.

We will work on spawning collodion on the aluminum plates, putting them in a silver bath, photographing with old cameras, developing and fixing in the darkroom.
It should all end with you getting a real wet plate photograph home with you. However, with this technique you never quite know what will come out of it, and that is exactly what makes the technique so super exciting to work with.

NB Since we are working with chemistry that can cause stains on the clothes that cannot be removed again, it would be a good idea to use clothes from an older date.
