It is not uncommon to encounter chemical, equipment, lighting and other technical difficulties when one starts out on their own in the wet plate collodion process after an introductory course. In this workshop students will have the opportunity to bring in examples of trouble plates they've shot on their own, and Sam will discuss methods to diagnosing and troubleshooting the chemistry or equipment at fault. Some common mistakes and their respective solutions will be demonstrated and time allowed for continued practice and experimentation in order to maintain consistent results with one's wet plate set up at home. Options for camera modifications and darkroom/darkbox setups will be discussed.
