Self-poured Glass Plates

Fine art photography on self-poured glass plates of images made with antique cameras.

I mostly use photographic paper instead of the glass plates that would have been used originally in the cameras from c1900.

Having tried vintage and bought dry platesI wanted to try pouring my own plates as a pre-cursor to perhaps trying some collodion plates.

Using the ISO as very slow 2 I got some success.

bought Foma emulsion from Silverprint.

There is something very special today to have an image that is as substantial as a piece of glass rather than an ephemeral digital file.
