FCPS Photography teachers had the opportunity this past fall to throwback to the 1850's and enjoy the meticulous labor of making our own wet plates! Photographer Daniel Leocadi crafted a unique one day workshop tailored to photography educators. We learned the rich history of the craft, the cameras used and experienced the breathtaking development first hand.
My favorite part was absolutely watching the photographs develop right before our eyes!
We need more opportunity for experiential development. When we put ourselves in a space where we are challenged and engaged we thrive! We are continuously asking our students to make...we must also make, it truly enhances our professional practice as educators.
