On this episode of Dev Party, Eric and Vania develop dry plates! That’s right! Photographic emulsion on glass! How does that work? Basically like film – with a catch.
Vania shot Zebra Dry Plates and developed in HC-110. Here’s one:
And Eric developed a J. Lane Dry Plate, but effed up the exposure and got nothing. However, the following day he tried again (and took a backup shot on Fomapan!). First the dry plate, and then the Foma. Both were 60 second exposures at around f/12.
