Today we are talking Tintypes!! A Tintype is actually an underexposed negative which is placed on a dark background giving the appearance of a positive. It’s OLD, like 1853 old, and was the most common photographic process used until the more modern reloadable camera was invented. Pretty cool, eh?!

Matt McDaniel, of Matthew Ryan Photography, thinks so AND SO DO WE!!! Matt is keeping the process alive and we are so excited he’s allowing us to share some of his awesome work with you! Talk about honest – you get what you get – in all of it’s glory. You can see more of his work and read a little about the actual process here.

We hope you all had a great week and we hope you have a great weekend too!!
