Colódio Húmido 1851

Workshop May 28th — Former jail of Amarante

In this workshop, we will travel back in time to the early days of photography, precisely to 1851, to the third photographic process, the wet collodion. Here, we will learn how to manipulate the elements to obtain the chemistry that allows us to make the exposure and the relief of the photographs on an aluminum plate support. We will work with ancient cameras and lenses that are 160 years old. We will make portraits, exploring the handling of the cameras and the light used during the session. In the end, each participant will be able to take home two portraits. And a trip back in time.

The workshop is on May 28th in Amarante
