If you're interested in learning the wet collodion process, Galina is also teaching a two-day Wetplate Photography Workshop at the Gowanus Darkroom on December 8th and 9th. Workshop participants will learn the process of pouring collodion, exposing, developing, fixing and varnishing the plates. They'll also learn how to use large format cameras and get a chance to take home their own 4x5 and 5x7 inch plates.
