Following a brief historical introduction (coffee, tea or beverages included) we will get right away hands on. First, setting up our vintage camera and studio lights and tipping you on posing for a most characteristic result. Secondly, inside the darkroom, we will demonstrate the preparation of the photographic glass plate. Once the plate is ready (3minutes) we'll go back to the studio and shoot the image, hold still for five seconds!! And now the magic starts; back again in the darkroom, red safelight on, your portrait is developed. You won't believe your eyes: a silver made image on a glass plate which will last for 150 years.
(when a whole group is attending we will repeat the process 2 times. Selection of volunteers for posing will be by lot)
