Sunday, July 13, 10-4pm
Instructor: Ginger Berry

The Tintype is a positive image on a metal plate. The process is similar to daguerreotypes and ambrotypes, which were positive images on glass that could only be seen if you placed a background such as black velvet behind them, otherwise they were negatives. Participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of the wet-plate collodion process. Through a fully-immersive, hands-on, approach, they will uncover the techniques and knowledge necessary to produce their very own, unique, tintypes-- uncovering one of the most significant advancements in the history photography. All levels are welcome, no darkroom experience needed.

This workshop aims to achieve the following:
•To provide each student with basic knowledge of the wet-plate collodion process.
•Give the participants an opportunity to learn the technique in a hands-on environment.
•Leave the workshop with at least three (3) finished images.

The class will have a practical, hands-on, approach while also covering basic (and brief) but necessary topics such as history of the process, chemistry and equipment and safety.

*Advanced registration is encouraged.
*Mature teens are admitted with the understanding that this is an adult workshop.
