Tintype Portraiture

Eli & Edythe Broad Art Museum, MSU

SATURDAY, AUG. 25, 2018    2–5PM

Step back in time and explore the pre-paper, mid-19th century photography craze that is the tintype. Participants will delve into the history of this wet-plate process then sit for, develop, and take home a one-of-a-kind portrait on metal. Registration ($65)covers instruction and photography materials. This workshop is led by photographers Casey Cavanaugh and Khalid Ibrahim.
