I am so excited to announce I will be one of the featured presenters at the San Francisco Exploratorium After Dark event on May 7th. I will be demonstrating the wet-plate collodion process in combination with the Ascor Sun Light strobe system, from 6:30 to 10pm.
The evening is dedicated to exploring photography’s evolution, the craft of photography, and what makes an image memorable.
I will be photographing three subjects on the wet-plate process throughout the night and holding a raffle to photograph one attending guest.
I’ll be demonstrating the complete collodion process, from pouring the emulsion on to a 14" x 14" metal plate, sensitizing it in silver nitrate, exposing the image through a vintage large format camera and lens, and finally, developing the photo all within the span of about fifteen minutes.
In order to provide the amount of light needed to expose this very low sensitivity medium, I will be using the awesome power of the Ascor Sun Light system.
Please join me on May 7th at the Exploratorium in San Francisco for this incredible night exploring photography. Don’t forget to throw your name into the hat for a chance to get a wet plate portrait done that evening.
