Join Brenton for a day long exploration of the 1850’s Collodio Chloride process. Brenton will prepare this formula for your observation and coat it onto treated paper. This is a long scale, beautiful photographic process – you will learn to make your own photographic paper at the time of new technologies. Suitable for digital negatives or especially negatives made on glass. We’ll make silver salts and suspend them in a collodion binder – flowed onto paper. The beautiful papers, gloss surface and scale make this a special process. Simple, long lasting and a fundamental POP emulsion of early photography.

Students can participate if you have a suitable darkroom – or you can elect to observe Brenton’s live demo and collect notes. There will be robust and ample time for Q & A.

NOTE: Students who wish to practice these techniques at home during the virtual instruction should expect to make an additional purchase of Lab Materials (list provided by Brenton) for $175.
