Weekend Workshop at the Photographers' Gallery

  • The Photographers' Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

 

Over three days this workshop teaches the Victorian, wet-plate collodion photographic process from start to finish.

Leading wet-plate practitioner James Millar and darkroom technician Ben Wallace walk you through each stage of the process. Alongside practical training hear about its historical development and how this ever-popular technique continues to be used by photographers today.

The course starts on Friday evening in an informal setting with a talk exploring the history of this fascinating technique. Saturday will be dedicated to walking you through the process and then on Sunday James and Ben will delve into further detail on how to make chemistry, building a darkroom, lighting for tintypes and scanning and preserving your images.

Learn the processes of ‘flowing’ and sensitising a metal plate in a field darkroom. Frame and focus your picture on one of three vintage cameras and then insert the plate to make the image. Watch as your image on a sheet of blackened aluminium develops and emerges as a negative in the darkroom and then transforms into a one-off positive image in the fixing bath. All materials are included and at the end of the course you will walk away with your own tintype.

James Millar is an award-winning, multi-skilled photographer based in London and the South West of England. He works for a number of high-profile clients and regularly has his work published in the national media. As well as his commercial work; which covers portraiture, documentary, architecture and product photography, James is also involved in a number of artistic projects that include working with cabaret and performance artists.

Tintype artistic retreat - Aberfeldy, Perthshire.

This January I'm returning to Aberfeldy. I love Aberfeldy. My plan is to spend the entire month shooting pictures in wet plate, in Scotland, in the mountains, with howling winds and sub-zero temperatures using a mobile darkroom, in the boot of my car and see what happens. I will be going out every day and shooting pictures and it might be a complete disaster, I may get nothing at all, but I'm going to have a crack at it. But this time, I will be filming and documenting the endeavour for posterity, because if I don't get anything at all at least it might make some entertaining viewing. 

If you fancy getting involved, let me know.
