COLLODION WET PLATE PROCESS

The "Collodion Wet Plate" process dates back to 1850. All necessary chemicals I use for this technique (Collodion, Silver bath, Developer, and Varnish) are made from scratch. For this photograph, an 8x10" tin plate was first coated with collodion and then put into a tank with silver nitrate in order to make it light-sensitive. Once removed from the silver tank, the plate was exposed, in this case with a large-format camera.

After the exposure, the image was developed in a portable darkroom as the developer liquid was poured directly on the plate. Once the plate had fixed and dried, a final coating of "Varnish" was applied to protect the photograph for eternity.
