Learn how to make tonally rich, beautiful albumen prints from your own collodion glass negatives!

Early masters in photography such as Julia Margaret Cameron, Gustave Le Grey and Lady Clementina Hawarden made albumen prints from glass negatives.

This workshop provides in depth insight into both the albumen and the collodion glass negative process.

Students will spend the first 2 days mixing chemistry and shooting glass negatives in camera.  We will be addressing exposure control, development mixtures, negative redevelopment and negative intensification specifically geared toward making albumen prints from our negatives. Participants will spend the remaining 2 days coating paper for albumen, learning specific albumen recipes, adaptive print contrast control, and toning your albumen prints. 

No prerequisite, beginners - advanced welcome!
