Paris Winter 2016 - Marche aux Puces with Ding Gerrous

Ding Gerrous presented an introduction to the technique of the wet plate collodion process on his large format camera at the Marche des Puces in Paris. He explained the work-flow from cleaning the glass, pouring the collodion layer, silver sensitization, exposure, development, fix, and rinse. It is  magic when you see a previously blank glass pane turn into a one of a kind photograph in 10 minutes. Silver nitrate stains permanently marked his hands.
