It's a really fun way to have your picture made and also learn a little about the history of photography!
Tintypes and ambrotypes are positive photos made directly on metal or glass. It's one of the ways photos were made before film! The technique is called the "wet plate" process and was invented by Frederick Scott Archer in 1851.
Each photo is a unique in-camera exposed image and you end up with an historically-made portrait that is extremely high resolution and will last a century. And best of all, you get to see this cool process happen right before your eyes!
In addition to my Tintype Photography studio sessions, I also LOVE to make images of vintage items, cars, motorcycles and scenic places. If you have something old or just a cool thing or place that you would like a tintype or ambrotype of, contact me!
