    For those of you living in the Portland, OR area, Blue Moon Camera & Machine has begun stocking J. Lane Dry Plates! I'm pretty excited to be making this announcement, if for no other reason than the folks at Blue Moon Camera are just awesome people who love analog photography as much as anyone. They will also develop your plates for you.

    So if you live in that area, stop in and tell them how great it is that they are doing this. They currently stock 4x5 and 8x10. Feel free to inquire about other sizes as well. I can make any size plates that you want.

    The people at Blue Moon are the best. If you drop by the shop on any given Saturday, you’d quickly come to the conclusion that film cameras were unquestionably enjoying their second heyday. They can barely keep the film shelves stocked! That place is abuzz with excitement, and everyone who works there has a wealth of knowledge to share. I’m thrilled to have Blue Moon in my neighborhood.

    Jason, your dry plates couldn’t be better represented than they are at Blue Moon. Be prepared to quit your day job!

    Congrats. This is terrific news but now I'm confused (don't worry, it happens easily and I get over it fast.) I don't know where to get my plates! :D

    My first test negative using J. Lane Dry Plates:
    [​IMG]

    I miscalculated bellows factor, so its a stop under where I'd like it to be, but I squeezed an image out of it just the same. Shot with my new Intrepid 4X5 and a 203mm Kodak Ektar lens. 30 seconds at f22, processed in Rodinal 1:50 for 15 minutes.

    Looks great, Paul. What emulsion batch is that from (on the back of the box)?
