Dig these, very cool

I'm always looking for unique actions and these are very cool. It's amazing what you can do.

I really love the options in this!

This set probably isn't for everyone, but it's an incredible set. Creating these looks is very hard, to get it looking good and authentic. These actions and overlays make it easy to do good work.

Complete Game Changer

This set is a complete game changer. The Wet Plates completely change the variety of looks I'm able to provide customers during post-processing. Do yourself a favor and pick up this set. You won't be sorry!

We at Sundance Photography have used Greater Than Gatsby actions exclusively for over a year now and we could not be more pleased. The Wet Plate Collection is a nice addition to their lineup because it offers the most distinct look out of all of their products. We love it.
