Weekend Workshop: Spirit Photography

Weekend Workshop: Spirit Photography


This session has passed. Join our mailing list to receive news on current and future workshops.

Have you ever seen an unexplained figure in a photograph? Photography has a long history of use to capture ghosts and things the human eye cannot see. For this two-day workshop, we will play with this idea and create spirit images using wet plate photographic techniques. Wet plate collodion was released to the public in 1851, and its vintage characteristics make it ideal for creating unique, ghostly images from the past.  This workshop will focus mainly on tintype photography, where a unique positive is created in-camera on a sheet of blackened metal. You do not need any experience in wet plate photography for this class. However, we will primarily be focused on making spirit images and less on the mechanics and principles of the medium.

Workshops have no minimum of enrollment requirement but the maximum is 6 students. We will refund 80% of the fee if you cancel 3 weeks prior to the first day of the workshop and 50% if you cancel 1 week prior to the first day. No refunds will be issued with less than 7 days notice of cancellation.
