On Saturday (June 22nd), Bruce Morton from Sonoma Tintype will be taking one of a kind original photographs using the same historic technique that was invented back in the 1850’s. Tintype photography is a way of capturing an image directly on a thin iron plate that has been coated with chemicals, exposed in a camera while the plate is still wet, and then developed immediately on location for a reasonable fee. This was the primary form of photography during the Civil War and is considered by many to be superior to modern photography because it’s almost grainless.
