Tintypes by Keith Klenowski

Friday, September 28, 2018

Keith Klenowski has been experimenting with tintype photographs in his backyard.

It’s a fascinating process, coating the rectangle of tin with collodial liquid and then silver photographic emulsion. After exposing the plate he develops it right on the spot with a darkroom in a box. A few minutes after the shoot? You’re looking at the photograph.

Amazing.

When showing these images to my mom she lamented I wasn’t smiling.

View a few more photos from the morning shoot.
