International Wet Plate Day


This Saturday is International Wet Plate Collodion Day. Tintypists and ambrotypists from all over the world (I’m one of them) will make pictures for a book on the anniversary of the death of the process’ inventor, Frederick Scott Archer, in 1857. I want to have an all-day tintype party at my studio in Portland. I need people who want to be in some pictures, and who wouldn’t mind maybe appearing in the book. This will be the second annual book. Last year ( I was published) and proceeds from the book sale went towards getting Mr. Archer a headstone, something he sorely lacked.

Contact me if you’re interested. Bring a friend! I want to make as many pictures as possible while the sun shines on May 1st.
