Tintype Practice

This is a 2-day hands-on intensive, workshop is designed for students with basic wet plate skills that want the opportunity to have more time to experiment with techniques with guided assistance and have more time to shoot more complex images.. We will discuss in more detail chemical maintenance as well as solutions to frequent problems of the process. Students may work in camera or with digital positives on enlargers depending on students experience and interest. The class is limited to six students to allow for plenty of time for guided printing to really refine your work. 

PRE-REQ: Wet Plate Photography, Level 1 or the Digital Positive Tintype workshop. 

INCLUDES: Wet plate materials and 10 plates are included in the cost of this class. Additional plates and film holders can be purchased.

BRING: Digital Positive transparencies or if shooting in camera bring an object to photograph. Please indicate which of the 2 processes you’d like to concentrate on when registering
