Repurpose a Vintage Polaroid Camera for Wet Plate Photography

Have an old Polaroid camera lying around collecting dust? Did you know that you can use it for wet plate collodion photography?

Frederick Scott Archer inventou em 1851 a emulsão de colódio húmida, método que viria substituir os processos utilizados pelo daguerreótipo e o calótipo.  O processo consistia em cobrir uma placa de vidro com o preparado e, na câmara escura, o colódio iodizado era imerso em banho de prata e formava iodeto de prata com excesso de nitrato. Ainda úmida, a placa era exposta à luz na câmara, revelada por imersão em pirogalol com ácido acético e fixada com tiossulfato de sódio.

frederick scott archer invented the photographic collodion process which preceded the modern gelatin emulsion.
