Wet Plate Collodion Photography

Palm Springs Photo Festival Alternative Process Photography & the Desert Landscape | May 6th-10th, 2018

Join Jill Enfield at  Workshop: Alternative Process Photography & the Desert Landscape Photographing with a large format camera and chemicals that you have to carry with you may seem like an arduous task, but in fact, it is quite fun and invigorating. It brings photography back to a tactile art form and enables the photographer to be in full control of the outcome. If it was good enough for Matthew Brady during the Civil War, why not? Landscape has played an important part in the history of photography worldwide. In this workshop, attendees will photograph in what is arguably the only portion of the American landscape that is relatively untouched since the inception of the medium. The nearby San Jacinto mountain range, the prehistoric palm oasis that gave it’s name to the village in the early 20th century and the desert floor itself will all be options for photographing in this unique class. The participants in Jill’s class will learn how to prepare for all types of weather and pack efficiently to go off for a day of photographing in any environment. We will address the importance of safety in preparing and traveling with chemicals, the changing light and photographing on glass and tin. This 3-day class will be like a survey class. Dates: May 6th-May 10th 2018 Location: Palm Springs, C.A. United States Register Here: http://2018.palmspringsphotofestival.com/project/jill-enfield/


Nord Photography/Norway Wet Plate Collodion Workshop | June 26 – July 1, 2018

Join Jill Enfield at Workshop: NORD Photography, Saga - Inderøy - Norway, Wet Plate Collodion The collodion process, which is said to have been invented in about 1850, was the first widely used photographic process that produced a negative image on a transparent photographic medium. Other methods of the time, such as the Daguerreotype, produced a one-of-a-kind positive image, which could not be replicated easily. With the collodion process, however, the photographer could make an unlimited number of prints from a single negative. In addition to the convenience of creating negatives, the collodion process had numerous other advantages. It was an inexpensive process, especially in comparison with the daguerreotype. The process starts in the darkroom by pouring photosensitive chemicals on a prepared glass plate, this plate is then inserted into the back of the camera body where the film normally goes. The camera is then taken out of the darkroom and students have approximately 10 minutes to make their picture before needing to develop. Students work with both glass plates and aluminum. The latter produces positives. The workshop will cover the entire process from cutting and preparing glass & aluminum, mixing and handling chemicals, safety procedures, making portable darkrooms, assessment of exposure time, evaluation of results, and all that goes into mastering wet plate collodion. Dates: Jun 26, 2018 - Jul 1, 2018 http://www.nordphotography.com/workshops/wet-plate-collodion


Maine Media Workshop — Wet Plate to Digital | August 19th-26th, 2018

Join Jill Enfield at  Workshop: Photography that Spans the Centuries – from Wet Plate to Digital   It can be very freeing to not have to take a large format camera, cleaned glass or tintypes, plus all of the chemicals, water and traveling darkroom with you into the field. You can use any camera you choose to use, and still be able to make wonderful ambrotypes and tintypes. What could be better! It is the best of both worlds. Bring your digital cameras along to go to a different beautiful Maine location every morning. No matter what your preference, from landscapes to portraits, interiors to street photography, we will cover a different topic every morning. The afternoons will be spent editing, making digital positives and then into the state of the art darkroom to make ambrotypes (glass plate) and tintypes from your enlarged negatives. We will discuss how to make the chemicals and how to tweak them with the change of weather so that you can go home and be confident to do this on your own. Dates: August 19th-August 26th mainemedia.edu

Internships & Mentoring for Alternative Process Photography

Alternative Process Photography by New York Fine Art Photographer Jill Enfield Internships & Mentoring: College students looking for credit while on the job learning are welcome to contact me. If you are attending a school close by, we can work around our schedules and come up with a plan for how many days and what the job would entail. Thinking outside the box!! There is also a possibility if you are not so close: A student from Boston would come stay with us several weekends a semester and get his internship hours in that way. There is plenty of room, but we do have cats – so be aware of the animal situation. Internship duties take many forms from helping me in the darkroom, scanning and organizing,  sending work out, to helping me with my website and posting workshops. We would work together to make a realistic list of things that need to be done to make sure we are on the same page and can work together well. Working on a project that you would like to get advice with? Mentoring can be arranged. Several options are available in this digital age: you can come here, or we can meet on Skype – whatever works for both of us can be arranged. Prices vary depending on what you were interested in, but we would flush that out before we began. Contact me to get started.
