Tin Type Portraits at Vintage Girl Studios


A tintype, also known as a melainotype or ferrotype, is a photograph made by creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion. Tintypes enjoyed their widest use during the 1860s and 1870s, but lesser use of the medium persisted into the early 20th century and it has been revived as a novelty in the 21st.
Tintype portraits were at first usually made in a formal photographic studio, like daguerreotypes and other early types of photographs, but later they were most commonly made by photographers working in booths or the open air at fairs and carnivals, as well as by itinerant sidewalk photographers.

We are so excited to announce the addition of tintype portraiture here at Vintage Girl Studios. We have seen a revival of tintype photography with Victoria Will's celebrity portraits at the Sundance Film Festival last year. Vintage Girl Studios always strives to offer our clients unique, interesting, cutting-edge choices and this spring we have decided get out the the computer chair and go back to the grass roots of mechanical vintage cameras and emulsion based photography. It has been much trial and error, but we believe that our effort is definitely worth it.  We hope you'll agree!

Tintype photography produces truly one-of-a-kind hauntingly beautiful art.

We will be debuting this offering at The Crane Estate Roaring Twenties Party with  mini sessions on Sunday, August 2nd.

We are offering three event sessions:

Tintype Package One - $55

  • One 4x5 Tin
  • Digital File of Tin
  • 8x10 print of Tin   

Tintype Package Two - $40

  • One 4x5 Tin

In the spirit of one-of-a-kind artwork, we also offer a 3x5 Polaroid Print taken with a Vintage Camera

Dixieland Cruise

Last week I had the pleasure of going to Rowes Warf in Boston before the Greater Boston Vintage Society's  Dixieland Cruise set off. I have been working on a very underground project that will be announced next week to the public.  I was testing this project in the field. I did snap some regular images also. Thank you everyone who posed for me! Checkout the entire album on our FB Page.
