Hello there, this is my first posting, but I figured this was one of the biggest and busiest forums, and wondered if anyone on here is interested in exploring wet plate photography? I have been running a little free workshop on a Sunday afternoon at an arts centre in Camden, and the people who run the venue, who are supporters of my project ("The Abolitionists") are now letting me have a corner of it for free every Friday evening. I should explain, that I build my own large format wet plate cameras out of 100% recycled materials, and can show people how to build a camera out of rubbish that takes some of the highest resolution images imaginable (when the raw chemicals involved are in a good mood that is!), simply because the ISO is approximately 2 to 5 and the glass plate negatives I shoot are up to 10" x 8". My favourite lens at the moment is from an old overhead projector and is surprisingly fast with rather good optics. Anyway, I'll post a couple of scans from recent shoots. Do let me know if any of you are interested?
