On Monday 6th July 2009, the club was fortunate
to have as guest speaker Mr. Stephen Cheung owner
of scstudio http//scstudio.com.hk .
Stephens main talk was on product and still life
photography and showed us many examples of his
work both professionally as well as his own
personal still life interest photography. After
the main presentation had ended, Stephen showed
us examples of his latest passion - wet plate
photography! Expect most of us will have never
seen this or maybe even heard of it but it dates
back over 150 years. Instead of film, the image
is exposed on a specially prepared glass plate by
having a collodion liquid applied and then dipped
in silver nitrate. The plate is then installed in
the camera and the image taken while the plate is
still wet. It is then developed, fixed and
washed all this within ten minutes. You may
read more about this process here
http//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collodion_processs
and http//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collodion
It was first developed in the 1850's. The result
is a negative image - although Stephen showed the
image becoming a positive when the glass plate
has a black surface placed behind it. Stephen
brought along a number of his glass plates, each
around 5" x 7" and showed many images on the LCD
projector, some of these were photographed "off
the wall" and follow here (apologies for the poor
quality). Not only is the process very old but
the camera and lenses are also - wooden box
cameras and brass barrel lenses. Sally Mann the
American photographer is known for this style of
photography and an image of her with her very
large camera attached, for more details on Sally
refer to http//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sally_Mann
Also included an image of the photographer John
Coffer holding a 20" x 24" tintype sheet for a
variation on this approach to photography.
Jhttp//www.johncoffer.com/ John travelled
around America with a horse and cart portable
photo lab just like the folks in the
1800's. Stephen has since advised us that the
local HK expert for wet plate photography is Mr

Stephen for spending his evening with us and
sharing his passion for photography as well as
giving us a glimpse back to how it all began.
