Jim Grainger: The Wet Collodion Process Demo

Last year RPS East Midlands members and guests visited Bromley House in Nottingham and whilst there came across Jim Grainger who was their resident photographer, working from a potting shed in the garden.

We coaxed him out and enjoyed an impromptu introduction to the wet collodion process, which proved highly informative and interesting.

Jim took a group shot of the RPS members and we watched him develop the glass palte which we now have, they will be at Whatton in October.

Now, it is Jim’s turn to visit us at Whatton where he will bring his camera and mobile darkroom and give us a more detailed discussion on the process and why he is still an advocate of the technique in the 21st century digital photographic world. Even if you think you  have no interest in old processes you will might find aspects of Jim’s presentation useful and implement them into you own practice.
