Hollywood Stars Captured With Vintage Tintype Camera
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 were widely popular during the 1860s and 1870s. Thanks to talented photographers like Victoria Will, tintype once again have its moment. At this year’s Sundance Film Festival, she decided to put down her digital camera and use a century-old technique to shoot the Hollywood stars. The result is celebrity portraits unlike any other you have ever seen before.
