About Tintype Photography:
Tintypes are created using the Wet Plate Collodion process invented in 1851 by Frederick Scott Archer. Shortly after, it became the World’s most widely adopted photographic method. Mathew Brady documented the Civil War with such photographs. Each plate is coated with collodion, sensitized in a silver bath, exposed in the camera and developed before the plate dries. This difficult process achieves the sharpest detail ever produced in photography, penetrating and revealing the true essence of the subject.
