:Tintype Portrait Studio Shoots Historic Images June 24 at Sage Brooklyn:
Jun 24, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm| $40
Introduced in the mid-19th century, each tintype photograph is individually created by coating, sensitizing, exposing and developing a metal plate as the subject sits for the portrait session. Many Civil War era photographs were created with this historic technology, which provides a hauntingly beautiful and permanent image especially suitable for heirloom portraits of individuals, families, artists and bands. Photographers Jeff Howlett and Chris Morgan have been photographing tintypes for over 17 years. The public is invited to have individual and family portrait heirlooms taken in this timeless medium from 6pm-11pm at Sage Brooklyn 299-301 Graham Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211
(718) 218-6644 on June 24. The cost of each image is $40.00, and everyone is welcome to come see this rare process in action (all ages, free to watch!).
Jeff Howlett is the director and producer of the acclaimed documentary ‘A Band Called Death,’ (abandcalleddeath.com). For more information and a portfolio: howlermanophotography.com.
Chris Morgan, Collodion Artist, has been creating tintypes using the wetplate collodion process since 2001. Traveling up and down the east coast, Chris has photographed historical places and events, as well as created timeless portrait images for thousands of individuals and families using this historic process.
