An afternoon of location wet plate photography with Lisa Elmaleh.
Upcoming Workshop

No workshops currently scheduled

Join Lisa Elmaleh and a small group for some quality shooting time. You can use DCP’s cameras and tripods or bring your own if you have the gear. Lisa will have her custom outfitted truck with chemistry set up. You’ll meet on location somewhere within a few miles of DCP. Details will be provided a few days before the workshop.

This is an opportunity to use the basic wet plate skills you learned in the intro workshop. If you’ve learned your basics elsewhere, we’ll put you in touch with Lisa to make sure this add-on day is a good fit for your level of experience.
