Photography and Film Industry:
Gelatin plays a vital role in traditional photography and filmmaking.
1. Photographic Films: Gelatin is used as a binding agent for the light-sensitive emulsion layer in photographic films. This emulsion contains silver halide crystals that capture light to produce the image.
2. Color Film Processing: In color film processing, gelatin helps bind color dyes to the film, contributing to the final image's sharpness, clarity, and color reproduction.
