|Collodion process||SWPP Photographic Glossary|
Monday 26th July 2021
A term also known as "wet collodion" was invented by Frederick Scott Archer in 1851 52. It was a great improvement over the earlier calotype process because because of the large increase in speed gained by exposing the plate while still "wet", but it had the disadvantage of requiring bulky equipment.
