This one-day workshop will offer a unique opportunity to learn about the historical tintype photographic process as well as create a one-of-a-kind portrait. We will have a backdrop with lighting set up and each participant will be able to create a 4"x5" tintype image of themselves.
Participants should bring an apron to protect clothing during the dark room segment of the workshop.
