In my proposed project proposal I stated that I wished to experiment with glass plate photography. Initially I had considered Wet Plate Collodion. That was until after purchasing and reading a book on the process I considered it was highly likely that I may gas or blow myself up! The process involves volatile chemicals and extreme care. The book advises that you must be a practitioner of the dry plate process first before you embark on wet plate adventures.
Advice taken on board my next book purchase is "Silver Gelatin, A User's Guide to Liquid Photographic Emulsions". The book is well laid out, informative and inspiring. However nothing compares to a practical demonstration. As luck would have it I find a weekend workshop at Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow. The test now though is my patience as it is not until April!
