Workshop: Figure Studies and the Tintype Photograph, Craig Barber

June 18-22, 2014 Figure Studies & The Tintype Photograph (Co-taught with Craig Barber & Eric Johnson )

Combine the timelessness of Wet Plate Collodion Photography and the human form in legendary Woodstock, NY – “the colony of the arts” – in the “Figure Studies and the Tintype Photograph” workshop.

Our 5 day, intensive, hands-on workshop is an excellent opportunity to learn the wet plate process using people as your subject. We have designed this to give you a solid understanding of the Wet Plate Collodion process and how to work with models (coustumed and au naturel), so you can continue on your own when you return home. In the first phase, run by Craig, you will learn to make tintype photographic plates – direct positives on metal. After that you will work with male and female models, under the guidance of Eric. All work will be outdoors with natural light.

Each student will also receive a “How-to” Handbook with instructions on:
*where to purchase supplies
*how to mix the necessary chemical formulas
*how to pour, expose and develop your plates
*how to set up a studio for wet plate
*advice on locating and working with models

The workshop is 5 days long and takes place at my (Craig’s) studio in Woodstock and various locations nearby. Each day starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m.

Lunches will be provided. Food allergies are accommodated.

Tuition for the Tintype/Figure Studies workshop is $1500.00 Enrollment is limited to 8.

Tuition includes all materials and equipment necessary for the workshop and all modeling fees. A $250.00 deposit is required to secure a spot in the workshop. The remainder is due 30 days prior to the workshop date.
