Wet Plate and Uranotype workshops coming up at Penumbra!

If you’ve been curious about the wet plate collodion process, now’s your chance to take a two-day Intro to Wet Plate workshop at Penumbra Foundation in New York City!  The workshop runs this coming weekend – December 8th and 9th – and is taught by everyone’s favorite instructor, Lisa Elmaleh.  Please click here for more info.

On the following weekend – December 15th and 16th – Penumbra has the following two workshops scheduled…

The uranotype process uses the element uranium instead of silver to create images that are a warm reddish-brown in tone.  Students will learn to work with this metal on its on and in conjunction with others.  And don’t worry…  The uranium used in the process is depleted of its radioactive isotopes and is considered safe to work with!  For more info on the process and workshop, please click here.

And for those of you who are looking to take your wet plate practice to the next level – literally – Lisa Elmaleh will be teaching a two-day 8×10 Wet Plate workshop.  Students will learn how to make glass negatives, tintypes, and ambrotypes in-camera.  Please click here for full details.
