Photography Summer Session 7

Photo Summer Session 7
August 14–19
Stephen Takacs
Dry-Plate Tintypes

This workshop will explore the process of using modern liquid photo emulsions to create dry-plate tintypes. Students will learn to coat metal plates with chemistry, expose them in large-format cameras, and develop them in the darkroom. Many of the demonstrations will focus on portraiture but students will be encouraged to pursue whatever subject matter they are most interested in. While prior photography experience will be helpful, this workshop is open to all skill levels. Note: large-format cameras are available in the Penland studio.
