Gibson's Photographic Gallery is by far the best authentic 1800's wet plate photography studio I have visited. Rob only uses authentic equipment and clothing from the 1800's to create his unique tintypes and glass plate photos. He can also transfer them to an actual photograph or place them on a DVD for you.
Rob will also (on special reservation) take outside photos and help you create your own special background etc, to make your photo unique to you.
My group has had several done there and will have more. The process is exactly like it was back in the 1800's right down to Rob mixing his own chemicals in antique beakers and you can watch as the tintype appears right in before your eyes.
Be warned... This is no $29.95 tourist photo shop. The whole process can take an hour and you must be able to sit completely still for at least 20 seconds but it is so much fun and you will have an authentic tintype or class plate photo that will last much longer than you will. This is high quality photography that will be passed down from generation to generation.
So the next time you are in Gettysburg tell Rob "The GhostBreakers" sent you. You owe it to yourself to at least stop in and see his fine work posted on his walls. You can see all the articles written, the movies & TV shows he did stills for and all the celebrities he took photos of. Also if you are a follower of the paranormal TV shows you might like to see the ones he did photos for and maybe have him do one for you with your own personal ghost like we did and maybe we will see you there...
