Workshop: Tintypes with Craig Barber

In a time when photography is being transformed by the digital medium, more and more photographers are exploring earlier processes.  Processes that are just as magical and relevant today as they have always been. 

This is an intensive, hands-on workshop that is designed so you will leave with a solid understanding of the process, thereby enabling you to continue when you return home.  In this workshop you will learn to make tintypes (tin plate direct positives), ambrotypes (glass plate direct positives), and glass negatives.   In addition to learning how to pour, expose and develop your plates, You will also learn how mix the necessary chemical formulas and how to Japan Tin (the blackening of tin to use for plates).
