In this medium format tintype workshop, participants will go back in time with Instructor Phil Chin and photograph using medium format size plates. Participants will make their own film by coating a plate with working collodion, sensitizing it in a solution of silver nitrate, and then exposing it in a medium format camera while still wet. They will then develop, fix, wash and finally varnish the plate. Participants will leave this unique historical photography workshop with a better understanding of the wet plate collodion process using a camera
All materials are included in the workshop fee.
