Video from Photo Safari

This is video from our five day workshop on wet plate collodium negative with salt and albumen printing. It happened in August 2015 in Slovenia. The first day was introduction with first wet plate collodion negatives. Second day was raining, so we went to Studio Pelikan, one of the best preserved skylight studios in Europe, where we were making collodion negative portraits. Third day we were making salt prints, fourth day we went to shoot outdoor and had some rafting. On the last day we learned albumen printing and collodion chloride printing processes.
