Wet and Dry Plates previews

Dry Plate group shot

So yesterday I got to do something a little bit different! I got to be involved in some antique photography processes!

Wet Plate group shot

Wet plate photography was originally used between the 1850's to the 1880's and then Dry Plates took over until Kodak came along.

We realised afterwards that Kev forgot to take off his wristwatch so we came up with a story about how I'm a Timelord and he's my assistant!
These are the plates themselves, I will upload scans of the contact prints when I have them :)

The photos were taken by Jonathan Keys and our outfits are mostly by Forever in Black.
