Wet Plate Collodion Shooting Add On

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

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.

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.
