Take photos like it's 1889

The story goes that in the 1950s my late father made a quarter plate camera from bits of pre-war cameras and parts of his own devising. He stopped using it in the mid 60s believing that glass plates were no longer produced. I took up the camera in 2017 and gave it a but of a test run with some 50s plates sourced from that auction site before finding out that Jason Lane hand makes brand new plates, and at a reasonable price! So I bought a pack and took the opportunity of the first "Lockdown" in England to do lots of photography in local countryside. Including shooting a few glass plates. The 2ASA means 1/10 second even in bright sunlight, so most users will be taking a tripod on their travels. These are orthochromatic so have a real 19th century look to them. The quality of the coating is excellent and the notches on the glass mean that loading them in the dark is easy. They're packed very well (mine flew over from the USA before I realised AW sell them) and are a unique product in this day and age. If you're up for the challenge, give them a try. Also see "Speed plates" at 25ASA.

The photo attached is from said unique camera, f4.5 1.10 second hand held 20th April 2020. Developed in ID-11 stock for 9 minutes in a vintage "Envoy" plate processing tank. Fix 5 minutes in Adofix P.

No Surprises

I have already shot two boxes of J Lane Speed Plates and decided to try these out to see the difference. The emulsion is not the same as the speed plates which are Orthochromatic. I downloaded an exposure compensation graph from Pictoriographica, which is Jason's website . This allows you to take into account the levels of UV light present at the time of day and the time of year when exposing. This proved to be pretty good and the first two plates came out very well indeed. Developed under safelight as instructed I am very happy indeed with the results. If you ever fancied giving plate photography a go, this is the perfect way to start. If you do your homework, there should not be any unpleasant surprises.........
