ABOUT THE ART
All my photographs are taken using techniques were invented in the 1850's called tintype photography. Originals can be purchased from www.waterandtin.com and prints can be purchased here.
Water and Tin Photography was started in 2014 using photography techniques commonly referred to as tintypes or wet-plate photos. These techniques were invented in the 1850's and were still common during the early 19th century.
Every photograph is a unique one-of-a-kind image produced by hand and impossible to duplicate. Some common chemicals are poured onto an 8x10 inch aluminum plate making it into a light sensitive surface. Once coated the wet-plate is loaded into the back of a vintage medium format camera.
The model is then photographed and the wet-plate is taken back into the dark room where it is developed and then fixed before being washed and dried. The final step is coating the image with a lavender varnish that will protect the image for years to come.
The prints sold here are scanned at 600 dpi, the dust is removed and contrast restored.
