Tintype Portraits


A Tintype is a photograph made directly on a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the hand poured photographic emulsion. Tintypes were widly used during the late 1800s and most have stood the test of time being in near original condition today. 

Pixel and Halide offers Tintype portrait sessions for contemporary take on this 19th century wet plate colloidon process.
