Original emulsion plates with ASA 2
Dry Plates allow you to make glass negatives that you can come back to rather than having to develop right then and there.
These are hand-coated onto hand-cut glass. The glass edges are ground for safety but please handle carefully. Jason notches the edge of the plate very similar to how sheet film is notched, so you can orient by feel in complete darkness if you don't have a safelight or you just like hanging out in complete darkness.
Gelatin dry plate photography dates from the 1870s when silver halide photographic emulsion was hand-poured onto glass plates and allowed to dry prior to use as a negative.
Our D-19 developer works great for produing a dense high contrast negative!
