Tintypes with Todd Forsgren

Apr 27

This beginner’s workshop covers the early photographic process of tintypes. Beginning with the use of large-format and medium-format cameras with direct positive paper images, the class will then progress to making ferrotypes, a safe tintype dry plate process. Students will learn about basic photographic chemistry and techniques for making images with extremely low ISOs (c. 2). Each student will leave the class with a tintype portrait of themself or a loved one as well as a number of other unique photographic objects that they have collaborated in the making of.
