Yesterday I travelled to Hull to provide a wet plate tutorial for Sam Cornwell, a photographer from Portsmouth, he had already had a taster session at the Bristol Festival of Photography last month.
Weather reports had been pretty dire and we were ready to shoot indoors with artificial lights. Sam and his wife Beverley, also a photographer, were staying at Bevs parents house for a few days. I think I was more worried than Sam about any silver nitrate stains on the floor of the fantastically improvised darkroom/bathroom. Luckily, when I arrived the sun was out and we made the most of it.
