Wet Plate Collodion Woorkshop

This autumn, finally, I had a chance to try the most desired by me photographic technique of wet plate collodion. A few months ago I was inspired to explore this technique having seen a film about John Coffer. As I haven't found anybody giving collodion workshops in Ireland  I decided to do it in Poland. Workshop took place in Izerskie mountains, were organised by Jacek Jasko and lead by Tomek Mielech . I'm so glad I did it !! Great atmosphere, fantastic company and 2 days of hard work till late night. We shoot with 4x5 format on clear glass and on black plexiglass.
