Learn about the amazing history and science of tintype photography with Craig Murphy and Glens Falls Art!

Tintype photographs are created on metal or glass using the same unpredictable and always fascinating process used during the Civil War.

“Wet Plate” refers to the fact that the metal or glass plate must be exposed and processed before becoming dry. These images are created the same way 19th-century photographers like Mathew Brady, Alexander Gardner, Seneca Ray Stoddard and others would have used.

You can even arrange to have your own one-of-a-kind portrait made while you watch and learn about this unique process that made “likenesses” so popular at the advent of photography.

The collodion process.
