    I'm in the same situation as you are, Nev.

    And I'm a heck of a lot farther away from anything than Ottawa! I've even picked up a hand-made half-plate camera and holders from Ty Guillory to get me started. John Coffer's DVD's seem a must, but I agree that getting some time in person for instruction is vital.

    I'm willing to travel, obviously...PM me if you're interested on pairing up for this!

    youTube has a few short videos that are interesting. google "collodion video" I am also interested in the process and I was wondering if the collodion sold at Formulary has all the ingredients or is it plain collodion in need of more chemicals before you dip in the sensitizers. any help would be greately appreciated.

    The collodion you buy is not a salted collodion. Salted collodion for wet plate has a limited shelf life. So yes you will need USP collodion ( and not the flexible collodion) , ether, grain alcohol, and depending on the recipe, salts like, cadmium bromide and potassium iodide. As it ages the slower and more contrasty it will become until it is not usable at all. 6 months or a little longer if it is kept refrigerated. I've seen collodion used that was a year old.
