This is not merely a photo shoot session; we would also like to spend some time talking to you about the photographic process, show you how it works as well as give some background to its history. This is one of the slowest ways to take a photograph, so we do need you to allocate at least 30 mins for your session.
These tintypes will be developed in a small, portable darkroom that can at times become stifling with chemical fumes. Please let us know if you are likely to have an adverse reaction in these sorts of conditions. The light given off by the flash units can be quite intense for some people and probably not suitable for those with sensitive eyes or any medical condition that a bright flash may induce a seizure.
We recommend a maximum of only 2 people per shot, single portraits are most ideal. We do offer retakes for issues due to technical problems.
The tintype will need to be varnished and cured for at least a full day so that they will last a lifetime. You can schedule an appointment to pick it up at the gallery any time after 1-2 days.
