Way back when, before the advent of collodion wet plates, albumen was used to create glass plate negatives. Has anybody here tried this process? I have decided to give it a go, following the instructions in The Silver Sunbeam by J. Towler and The Photographic Negative by W.H. Burbank.
I have coated my first plates with the salted albumen mixture. They are currently drying in a (hopefully) dust free place. Next step is sensitizing and then I will be exposing them in a 5x7 GOMZ field camera that I stumbled upon a few months ago.
