This image was created at a Wet Plate Collodion (Ambrotype/Tintype) workshop with Tom DeLooza ( at the Center for Photography at Woodstock, Woodstock, NY USA. We made our own light sensitive emulsion and poured it onto a piece of glass. We exposed the glass plate and then developed the image. It's a really interesting process. Frankly, I'm just glad I got an image or two during the workshop.

Now, that's hard work. I have to say, too demanding for me, I suspect. I'll see if I can master conventional film first...

It's got lots of personality. So much work.

I remember the exposure times seemed awfully long. Tom said the ISO was around 2. The exposure also had to be made within 15 minutes of creating the wet plate. If someone ran over that time, the emulsion could dry and it wouldn't work.
