It will be a few bits about early techniques – daguerreotypes and calotypes – and then wetplate with a demo of the process and one or two hands-on practices for the participants. Maximum 10 persons and it is possible to book if you click here.
I will also be part of an exhibition at the festival together with my friends in the Sunny f16 photographer collective. And there will also be lot of other exhibitions and workshops and lectures.
The picture above is a half plate-ish salt print from a collodion negative with the usual gold toning.
I took this last Friday, 11-11-11, and technically it isn’t as good as it was supposed to be. Nothing about my skills of course, just external factors… 😉
Temperature just above freezing, the developer behaved strange, the sun just about to set and all light quickly disappearing. And two journalists making a story about the couple and their dresses, but it turned out to be just as much about me so they followed me closely. Anyway, they put together a nice story in the paper and, most important of all, the couple are happy with the picture so then I am happy too.
