Ambrotypes will be performed on black glass and Tintypes will be performed on blackened aluminum (a modern version of the Tintype). Workshop participants will walk away with two finished plates and knowledge to get started in this revived technique. There is a passionate revival in the 19th Century techniques and many artists and commercial photographers are working Wetplate photographers.
