Introduction to the Whole Plate Photographers' Column

Post  Whole Plate on 2009-07-23, 14:42

Welcome to the Whole Plate Photographers Column!

The WPPC is a dedicated user resource for whole plate format photographers, using film, dry or wet emulsion plates. The common theme for photographers using the Column is the contemporary use and revival of the whole plate format. This is approximately an 8 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch format, the imperial measure being retained in preference over the metric equivalent.

The Column started on 30th June 2008 with a view to supporting newcomers and users of whole plate photography and promoting awareness and development of each others' whole plate practice. On 23rd July 2009 migration to its current site has commenced.

Unlike other internet resources such as forums, the Column is intended to be open source: whole plate photographers can author, edit and create their own articles/pages/reviews on the Column.

WPCC users are welcome to contribute as they see appropriate. The Column is managed as a non-mainstream interest with a view to promoting the historical appreciation and use of the Victorian whole plate format.

This Column is new to us. New to the 21st Century.

Feel welcome to add any comments or suggestions as to how the Column might be improved.


Kind regards,


RJ

This is a test. Just seeing how long it took to load a reply page.

Is it any faster than the previous WPPC googlegroup site?

It seems to be just as slow for me. Perhaps I need to rethink the format and par the user interface down to a minimum.
