One morning I woke up and realised that I want to build windsor chairs. This is my latest, and learning how to make them has kept me busy and leaving less time to photography. Yesterday I combined the two and made this tintype.
I got an assignment from the town of Nässjö to make an exhibition as they are celebrating it being 100 years since the town was founded, and they wanted new old-looking pictures to show.
I have made 15 albumen prints from collodion glass negatives plus four aluminotypes, they are off to the framer today.
Opening will be on the 30th of August at Nässjö railway station.
Den 5-6 oktober kommer jag att ha en workshop i våtplåtsfotografering strax utanför Lund där jag bor.
Vi kommer bl a att gå igenom följande:
- Kemi med säkerhet och blandning av silverbad, collodion, framkallare och lack.
- Alla praktiska moment inklusive lackning med demonstration och för deltagarna att göra själva.
- Enklare felsökning.
I am booked to do a wet plate collodion demo/workshop at Landskrona Foto Festival on the 24th of August.
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.
