Definition of half plate in English:
A photographic plate measuring 4 3/4 × 6 1/2 inches (circa 10.8 × 16.5 cm).
- These were all made using a 5 * 4 (half plate) rather than a 10 * 8 (full plate) camera, so that the entire area of the painting is not always covered in the photograph.
- I somehow thought portraits would have been in half-plate or even full-plate.
