Special Tintype Photography Workshop Offered
Craig J. Barber, a photographer from Woodstock, NY and Saltonstall alum from 2011 will be offering a special, two-day workshop in tintype and ambrotype photography at the Saltonstall Colony on Saturday and Sunday, November 3-4.
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 intensive, hands-on workshop will provide you with an excellent introduction to this beautiful handmade process, thereby enabling you to continue when you return home. In the workshop you will learn to make tintypes (tin plate direct positives) and ambrotypes (glass plate direct positives). In addition to learning how to pour, expose and develop your plates, you will also learn what chemicals and equipment are needed to set yourself up as a tintype photographer.
Cost: $275 (includes all chemistry and equipment)
What to bring: lunch both days; clothing and footware appropriate for some time outdoors; latex or nitrile gloves and an apron. (This process stains and this is the way to keep clean.)
Registration: this workshop is limited to just 6 participants.
More information, including payment information can be found on our workshop page.
