    Wet Plate Collodian Workshop

    Posted by Mia Faith on Jul 29th 2019

    This is a fantastic workshop with something to offer everyone from beginners to experienced wet plate photographers. The chemistry is perfectly calibrated. There are a range of cameras, lenses, plate sizes and materials at your disposal. The instructors are a dynamic duo who, together, have an incredible range of expertise about both the technical and artistic aspects of the process. Bryan from UV Photographics is an innovator in the field who eagerly imparts his vast knowledge of the chemistry and shares his best practices. The workshop is held in Mike's studio at Modern Tintype, allowing you to observe Mike's personal process from plate prep to varnish. He is a true craftsman who blends studied technique with artistic intuition. It was a thrill to observe him in his rhythm. If you are lucky, he might even shoot your portrait. Both Bryan and Mike are incredible flexible and willing to follow your lead. One participant wanted to shoot on her own Hasselblad so Bryan cut custom plates to fit her holder. Another participant wanted to shoot panoramas outdoors and Mike readily assisted. I have taken other wet plate workshops and I got my best results here. Bryan and Mike create a supportive environment in which you are encouraged to pursue your personal goals for the workshop. Highly recommend!!
