Lindsey Ross will be making wet plate collodion tintype and ambrotype portraits on the deck at Proof Lab Station Dec 13, 14, 15 & 16. Tintypes are photos created directly on metal and ambrotypes are photos created directly on glass. Using this late 19th century chemical, photographic process and both contemporary and vintage equipment, Ross will make one of a kind portraits, which will become instant heirlooms. The images will be visible the day it is created but but will not be finished and ready to take home until the following Tuesday.
Heres an example!
