    Ferndale is in peak photo season right now.
    The state fair is going on until Sunday (5 rolls of 220 and 5 of 120 shot so far and going back for more tonight) and the dream cruise starts tomorrow.

    Sept 10 is a little early for colour isn't it? Clare and the date are aok with me. The pidgeon river is a little north, but easy to get to and very photogenic. Little manistee is very nice but a little harder to find and your stomping grounds, although even further north are very excellent (cherry festival?).

    Luddington is easy, pretty and has tons of accomodations...

    (EDIT)
    [COLOR=Navy]Let me back track a hair. Clare in Sept is great. As noted above, there are a lot of oppertunities for future meets.[/COLOR]

    Don,

    Are you doing wetplate? I just returned from a collodion workshop in NJ with Michael Mazzeo and am psyched to do some more soon. Ive accumulated all the stuff to do it on my own and am working on a portable field darkroom. I hope to have it set to go by next weekend.

    Are you in Saugatuck by any chance? I've heard someone there does the process. I also know Albinger in Lansing used to make tintypes and there are a couple ambrotypists in the Detroit area I believe.

    Any idea how many wetplate collodion photographers are in the state and who they are?

    Joe

    If you don't have one, check the book store for "Michigan Atlas & Gazetteer". It has the state broke down and shows all the waterfalls in the state. There are a lot of them in the U.P.

    I'm from Kazoo and live 50 miles north. If you get to kazoo, I'm good for coffee.

    AFAIK the term "collodion image" would refer to either a wetplate collodion ambrotype glass positive, a tintype/ferrotype/melainotype positive on a metal sheet (iron in the past and aluminum contemporaneously), or a collodion negative glass plate. There were some dry collodion glass plates for negatives as well.

    I've never heard of a collodion print, which is not to say there isn't such a thing.

    Gotta start someplace. How about September 10, in Clare, Michigan ?

    If we meet in the middle of the state a couple times this fall, we can meet.. then retreat during the winter. I think Ferndale, maybe a studio tour, would be good in, oh, November or December.

    Ok, Clare sounds good to me. The 10th will work out as well. Who else is on board?

    For what it's worth i shoot 4x5 B&W only.

    Oh, and how may i be of assistance in getting things together for this little gathering?

    Joe,
    I have been told that at one time (late 19th century) collodian prints were very popular, but have become more obscure.

    I could be mis relaying or applying the information I was given.

    Peter, I believe that I can make the drive up. However I will come up Friday evening more than likely. So I am gonna find a nice cheap hotel. How about a rec for a good meal and a beer? Also, for what's worth, I will shoot 35mm primarily, but I am planning on bringing my 4x5 (thanks, bobfowler) and perhaps when you or someone else has a little time maybe you could show me a few things.

    Aw shucks, Joe. I was just fooling around. I'd like, in a couple years to take on wet plate. But, no.

    I guess by spreading the word, and representing the 'up north' contingent !

    And we can figure out some details. Know anybody from Clare ?
