Todd Vinson Wet Plate Collodion Photography

Please join Serenbe Photography Center in welcoming Todd Vinson, photographer and artist from Maryland, to Serenbe Community where he will give a Dinner & Dialogue talk at 3:30 pm Friday at the Inn/Farmhouse, and workshop all day Saturday.

Todd is a master of the unusual "wet plate collodion" photographic process using large format cameras (including an 11 x 14!) with glass plate negatives which give appealing "vintage" look and highly creative results. His workshop will be filmed by GPTV. Please join us for his talk, which will include showing cameras and finished plates and slide show, or see Todd in action on Sat - contact Kathryn for more info and questions - cell 404-862-0118.

Todd Vinson will demonstrate wet plate collodion photography – with several cameras incl. very large (11 x14) format. The emulsion is put on the plate, image exposed & processed before drying, and then “fire” dried with an open flame to produce one of the most stable archival photographs ever invented. Used in the 1800’s before film, this process is now being adopted by photographers and artists looking for new expression with unpredictable elements. Workshop participants will gain hands-on experience with this process, and Todd will also explain how to make digital prints from the images.

Presentation Friday Jun 4, 3:30 – 5:30pm is free, but please RSVP, Todd will bring special cameras and plates in addition to slideshow
optional dinner afterward prix fixe $40. at the Farmhouse (family style with choice of entree, veg sides from Serenbe organic farms, assort. desserts)
presentation location: The Inn at Serenbe
Workshop is Sat 9-5 - $135 (educator or photography club discounts - press no fee)
Contact – Kathryn Kolb - 404-862-0118
