    Glass plate negatives were something I steered away from in the past because they were a total mystery to me. Last November I attended a Carbon Transfer workshop at the George Eastman House where we were given a choice of vintage glass plates from the archives to print. At first I was disoriented about using glass. I half expected to hear a crunch as I closed the print frame and slid the springs in place. Not only that but I decided to go for broke and transfer to glass. My first experience with glass plate negatives and carbon transfer to glass was like a dream. All the stars aligned that day! I'd really like to take an emulsion class at the George Eastman House. Education is the best way to dispel fears.

    I know and I'm not getting any younger! There's no better place to learn than the George Eastman House. Thanks!

    Home made glass plates

    I can certainly endorse the GEH course - I am still fired up nearly a year later!

    But the biggest problem I have had is finding glass in a thickness to match the plate holders for the Zeiss Ikon camera I have. I am in the UK and have followed a number of leads for 1.4 - 1.7mm glass to no avail. I have now purchased two 10 x 8 cameras hoping to find plate holders to suit standard 2mm glass. Hopefully I maybe getting close.
