Tintype with Rob Norton

Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography
401 Richmond St W, Ste 120

Instructor, Rob Norton provides participants with the history as well as the techniques to work with this antique process for contemporary use.  This workshop includes: learning how to properly pour a wet-plate using collodion; printing tintypes of personal images from positive transparencies using an enlarger; and composing and shooting unique portraits using a historical wet-plate camera.  At the end of the day, each student takes home his/her own personalized plate tintypes.
