Revisiting the Wet Plate Collodion Technique

The wet collodion process is one of the oldest and major photography techniques. In early photography, the process underwent various experimentations by photographers themselves.

The collodion requires the photographic material to be coated, sensitized, exposed and developed in the span of time, usually with a portable darkroom. By the end of the 1850's the technique was replaced by the daguerreotype. However, there's been a surge among artists exploring this old medium -- particularly the tintype. Revisit the old technique with Alex Cook.
