Product Details

Experience the former glory of H.H. Bennett Studio by having your portrait struck in this exclusive historic experience! During your sitting, you will have your photo developed using the same methods of wet plate photography that were used by H.H. Bennett, in the same studio, over one hundred years ago. During your experience, you will be able to learn about this type of photography and the time period in which it thrived.

Visitors will then have their portrait taken and experience the developing process. The initial plate will be either a 4x6 or 5x7, any additional plates will be at the add-on rate.
