Step 3: Plate to Camera
While still in the darkroom, insert the plate into a light-proof holder, which is constructed to fit in your camera.
Take the holder to the camera and insert.
The silver nitrate solution will drip from the holder, even when it's in the camera. This is normal.
There's a slide in the holder that covers the glass plate. Remove the slide. The collodion plate is now ready for exposure.
