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.
