Chad Shryock, Tintype PhotographerLibrary: Old Town Library
Chad’s interest in wetplate collodion photography started with browsing through the many Civil War books in his father's collection.
“I couldn't believe the level of detail captured by photographers living 150 years ago with the technology they had access to. As I quickly learned, this chemical process of capturing light creates one of the highest quality photographs that can be taken and they can last for hundreds of years.”
The photographic medium known as tintype is making a comeback among artistic photographers. Chad discusses the origins of this vintage photography developed by Frederick Scott Archer in 1848 and used into the early 1880s. He also offers a modern demonstration of the traditional tintype process.
